A provider of parts and engineering services to wind power industry in North America and a manufacturer of wind turbine and custom components for motion applications worldwide, have announced their partnership in design, manufacture, and distribution of slip rings. UEA slip rings are said offer design versatility as component-kit rings or as completed, ready-to-mount assemblies with optional pre-wired harnesses. A wide selection of circuitry is available, with many combinations of amperage and voltage, ac or dc. The compact design is made possible by brushes stacked on alternating sides. UEA Slip Rings come in a variety of bore sizes, from 0.500 to 14.00 in. This approach translates into opportunity for Availon and UEA to develop more new aftermarket products.
Mark Hanawalt, UEA’s President, adds, “We manufacture custom-designed wind turbine slip rings that match exact customers specifications and are delivered in a matter of weeks.”
The partnership between Availon and Waverly, Iowa-based UEA will let Availon sell replacement components for aftermarket use in wind turbines. Stock will be kept in the Availon’s Iowa and Texas locations. The two companies will work together to facilitate the development of new UEA products and aftermarket solutions for many types of wind turbines.
