September 2022 – Knight Global has designed a family of Rotary Unions (patent pending) to accommodate for the rigorous demands often encountered with industrial automation equipment. These Rotary Unions can prevent winding or tangling up of electrical cables, wires, air lines and SDS chains. This greatly reduces the chances of equipment damage and its associated downtime.
Knight has several models of the Rotary Union available, both electric, pneumatic and a combination of the two. They can support capacities up to 1000 lbs.
There is also a Rotary Union adapter designed for existing Knight Servo Hoists that already have a Load Cell (or LMM).
For more information, see the brochure here and the video below! The SDS Servo Hoist and SDS Speed Hoist pages contain technical specs.
