Slew Drive features and three major advantages

Slew Drive is a full-cycle rotary slowdown drive with integrated drive power source. It is used as a drive follower and mechanism attachment. By attaching a drive on a ring in the inner and outer rings of the slewing ring, the drive source And the other housing is used as both a drive follower and as a connecting base of the driven working part, so that the use of the rotary support itself is the characteristics of the whole cycle of the rotary joint, and the power source and the main drive Parts, making it a set of rotary, deceleration and drive functions in one while the structure is simple, easy to manufacture and maintain the general-purpose slowdown transmission.


As mentioned above, the Slew Drive is a highly integrated full-cycle rotary slowdown mechanism, which features more than that, the maximum and minimum slewing drive can drive the gap between the parts and loads several times, but their size, especially the drive Chain axial size difference is not so, it is conducive to the structure of the series drive connecting the flat structure, so that the entire mechanical equipment has also been reduced.

In addition, both the gear type and the worm gear type Slew Drive due to the main and driven parts of the size difference is very large, it is easier to achieve large transmission ratio of the transmission, which is many other types of variable speed transmission mechanism is not easy to do of.

Slew Drive the three major advantages:


Due to the high degree of integration of the Slew Drive, the user does not have to purchase and process each of the accessories that make up the rotating device, and to a certain extent reduce the preparation process at the beginning of the product production, thereby greatly improving the labor productivity.


Worm gear drive with reverse self-locking characteristics, can achieve reverse self-locking, that is, only by the worm to drive the worm, and can not be driven by the worm gear worm. This feature allows the Slew Drive can be widely used in lifting, aerial work and other equipment, while improving the host's scientific and technological content, but also greatly enhance the stability of the host operating and operating safety factor. Slew Drive with the traditional rotary products compared to the installation is simple, easy to maintain, to a greater extent, save space for installation.

Simplify host design

Compared with the traditional gear drive, the worm gear drive can get a relatively large reduction ratio, in some cases, the host can save the reducer parts, so as to reduce the cost of procurement customers, but also greatly reduces the host failure rate.
