Late 1960s

Development of the First Coaxial Rotary Joints

High-frequency rotary joints are used whenever signals need to be transmitted between a fixed platform and a second, rotating platform.

SPINNER developed its first single- and dual-channel rotary joints back in the 1960s. They were initially needed for new, land-based radar systems. Today, however, SPINNER rotary joints can be found practically everywhere: in applications over and under water, on land, in the air, and even in satellites. SPINNER has been supporting technologies such as Fast Ethernet and optical transmission for state-of-the-art radar systems for decades.

In the highly sophisticated field of RF technology, today our products range from simple single-channel waveguides and coaxial rotary joints all the way to extremely complex rotary joints comprising several thousand individual components.
