Slipring made by Additive Manufacturing: from redesign to validation test results
No Thumbnail Available
The rotor of a cylindrical Slipring Assembly (SRA) has been re-designed based on a combination of Additive Manufacturing (AM), resin casting and machining. Whilst fulfilling all Form-Fit-Function (FFF) requirements derived from the existing SRA rotor design, the new design reduces the number of parts involved from 60 to 1 (considering a 30 channel rotor). This results in substantial reduction of the lead time and manufacturing costs.
