Slewing Drive Application
- Jun 02, 2018 -

Slewing drive has reverse self-locking because of worm gear drive with reverse self-locking characteristics. This feature greatly enhances the stability of the host operating and safety factor. Compared to the traditional swing products, slewing drive gearbox is easy to install, easy to maintain, and saves considerable installation space.

our slewing drives function with standard worm technology, in which the worm on the horizontal shaft acts as the driver for the gear. The rotation of the horizontal screw turns a gear about an axis perpendicular to the screw axis. This combination reduces the speed of the driven member and also multiplies its torque; increasing it proportionally as the speed decreases.[2] The speed ratio of shafts depends upon the relation of the number of threads on the worm to the number of teeth in the worm wheel or gear.

Slewing Drives are widely used in solar tracking system, wind turbine generation system,Man Lifts system,Hydraulic Machinery,Telescopic Handlers,Digger Derricks,Lifts Cranes,Drilling equipment,Military Equipment an others.


Slewing drive is a perfect motion control product for the application which requires rotational torque strength.

 slewing drive for Industry Market                                                 slewing drive for wind generators                                         slewing drive for Solar

For Solar: it is designed in solar photovoltaic panel rotation and improves power generation efficiency. Single axis & dual axis solar tracking solutions are available.For solar tracking system application include solar Concentrator Solar Dish, CPV (Concentrated Photovoltaics), CSP (Concentrated solar power), solar parabolic trough, PV tracker


For wind generators: Slewing drives are used to rotate the pedestal in wind turbines


For Construction Machinery Application: widely applied on mounted truck crane, aerial working platform, Dock Crane,


For Industry Market: Automation/Assembly line, robotic arm

For Satellite: slew drive can be used for space communications and global positioning systems in satellite dish
