Slip Ring for Electrical Industry

Slip Ring for the Electric IndustryWith an application requiring a high performance material, a manufacturer of wind turbine components contacted Woodland Plastics regarding our thermoset molding expertise to thermoset injection mold slip rings and brush holders out of a material resistant to high temperatures and providing electrical performance characteristics such as a high dielectric strength and low arc/track resistance. After reviewing material options, the customer decided on a fiberglass reinforced phenolic molding compound, RX 655.

The slip ring component shown above is thermoset injection molded in a 150-ton press before being post-baked, or annealed, for 8 hours. After the post-bake operation, parts are deflashed, given a final inspect by quality, and finally packed for customer shipment.
