twisterband - rotary movements in a very small space

Compact, modular, cost-effective, twistable up to 7,000°*

Rotary movements in a very small space - 20 times round its own axis. With the very compact igus twisterband, rotations can be achieved cost-effectively with low wear and very little maintenance, even in confined spaces, whereby energy, data and media can still be supplied reliably.
  • 7,000°* and more rotational movement horizontally and up to 3,000° in the vertical installation position
  • Rotary speeds up to 180°/s possible
  • Compact, modular and light
  • Strips can be shortened as required
  • Minimum installation spaces, fits tightly around the rotary axis
  • Can be used reliably in various installation positions (horizontal, vertical, upside down)
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy filling
  • Ideal in combination with chainflex cables for rotary movements in very confined installation spaces.
  • Five sizes available

Size overview

twisterband size overview

Calculation: number of strips depends on angle of rotation

(please always round up number of strips)

TB12: XX ≈ Angle of rotation/360 + 2
  • Example: XX ≈ 1200°/360 + 2
  • Result: XX ≈ 6 strips

TB20: XX ≈ Angle of rotation/340 + 2
  • Example: XX ≈ 1200°/340 + 2
  • Result: XX ≈ 6 strips

TB29: XX ≈ Angle of rotation/180 + 2
  • Example: XX ≈ 720°/180 + 2
  • Result: XX ≈ 6 strips

TB30: XX ≈ Angle of rotation/180 + 2
  • Example: XX ≈ 1200°/180 + 6
  • Result: XX ≈ 13 strips

    Special properties of the twisterband


     
    twisterband Film hinge: easy access and fast filling with cables and hoses (TB20.44.18, TB30)
    twisterband As a rule of thumb, the maximum rotation angle is: for each 180° hinge = 360° more rotation
    twisterband A central shaft must be installed for horizontal orientation angles of rotation above 1500°
    twisterband igus twisterband: extremely small installation spaces, fits very closely around the rotary axis
    twisterband Compact, modular and cost-effective - Horizontal: 7,000°* and more feasible, vertical up to 3,000° rotary movement in the smallest of spaces
    twisterband Can be used in different installation positions: here, horizontal 7,000°* and more rotary movement in extremely small space. Limited length compensation possible

    twisterband HD

    • Even stronger
    • Even longer service life
    • Rotary movement of up to 7,000 degrees* in very small spaces
    • Max. rotating speed: 180°/s
    • For routing electrical and fibre optic cables and pneumatic lines in one system

    *Rotary movements up to 3,600° can be ordered from stock. From 3,600°, please contact your igus representative.
