Kinematics -Slew Drives

Encapsulated rotation system ideal for applications requiring high torque at low speed. System typically used in applications such as solar trackers, cranes, radar antennas, mobile equipment, etc. Our Slew drives are designed to work in the most hostile environments thanks to its high degree of protection IP55 and IP66. Designed for applications where precision of rotation and positioning is required, low backlash, smoothly moving and durability thanks to the precision manufacturing of components. Is possible to use with hydraulic motors and electric motors combined with different types of gearboxes allow high output torque and low speeds.

SE

SE Enclosed Slew Drives help power movement across industries and are perfect for situations requiring both load-holding and rotational torque from the same gearbox. Our base model sizes deliver performance ranges from 6kNm to 220kNm of holding torque, 200Nm to 63kNm of output torque, 500Nm to 271kNm of overturning moment load capacity, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. The mounting can be done horizontally, vertically, or across a combination of multiple axes. 

KE

zwenkaandrijving

The KE style slewing drive is a maintenance-free drive with an IP66 rating designed to reduce the cost of labor in the field while also offering greater protection. Our base model sizes deliver performance ranges from 38kNm to 48kNm of holding torque, 1,400Nm to 10kNm of output torque, 33kNm to 67kNm of tilting torque, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. It can be horizontally or vertically mounted.

ZE

zwenkaandrijving

When little to no backlash is needed for an application, the ZE slewing drive is ideal. The drive offers as low as 0.01° of backlash. Our base model sizes deliver performance ranges from 3kNm to 220kNm of holding torque, 200Nm to 63kNm of output torque, 500Nm to 271kNm of overturning moment load capacity, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. It can be horizontally or vertically mounted.

VE

zwenkaandrijving

The VE is a fully-enclosed, vertical drive that does not require other components for mounting. The base model sizes of the VE drives deliver performance ranges from 3,000Nm to 38,710Nm of holding torque, 201Nm to 8,960Nm of output torque, 500Nm to 33,900Nm of overturning moment load capacity, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. The mounting can be done vertically without extra components.

 

SDE

zwenkaandrijving

The most common slewing drive application for the dual-axis slewing drives are dual-axis solar trackers, such as heliostats and concentrated photovoltaics (CPV), and satellite or radar dishes. Other applications include automotive lifts, robotic arm positioners, and stage equipment. Our base model sizes deliver performance ranges from 3,000Nm to 10,000Nm of holding torque, 200Nm to 3,700Nm of output torque, 500Nm to 13,000 Nm of tilting torque, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1 on each axis. The drives can be mounted horizontally, vertically, or on a combination of multiple axes. 

S

zwenkaandrijving

The S open hourglass is excellent for low-cost manufacturing equipment that requires daily maintenance and checks or doesn’t need to be covered. Our base models deliver performance ranges from 3kNm to 220kNm of holding torque, 200Nm to 63kNm of output torque, 500Nm to 271kNm of tilting torque, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. The mounting can be done horizontally or vertically. The drives are available with one of two worm shafts for increased torque.
