Space Applications

Rotary joints made by SPINNER for use in space make a decisive contribution to technological progress and precise communication because satellites in outer space would be almost worthless if communication links with ground stations were not permanently maintained. The antennas of satellites have to be permanently targeted at their ground stations, a task for which rotary joints are indispensable.

SPINNER Space key

One example are the lubricants used in the bearings, which need to withstand these loads and to be approved for use in space. Even under the extreme conditions in outer space, a rotary joint has to ensure absolutely reliable signal transmission over the whole service life of the satellite. In addition the lowest possible weight plays a key role. That is why the SPINNER designers use special materials that combine low weight and perfect durability.

The wealth of experience that our engineers have with rotary joints in extraterrestrial use and our commitment to continuous product improvement are the basis of our great success. When it comes to application in space, all major customers in Europe already trust in our rotary joints.
