Kinematics slewing drives are designed and tested to guarantee a 30-year field life. All aspects of engineering control are based on creating a low-cost, reliable solution. Using the same methods and procedures that earned us our ISO 9001, CE, REACH, and TUV certifications, we qualify all the raw materials, components and final assemblies to meet these standards.
Kinematics slew drives are powered with patented hourglass worm technology to give maximum survivability load-holding as well as increased efficiency and accuracy. Unlike standard worms which touch only one tooth, our hourglass worm engages 5-11 teeth on the pitch line of the ring gear from the hourglass thread. This increased tooth engagement gives the gearbox enormous strength and power.
The most common slewing drive application for the dual axis slewing drives are dual axis solar trackers, such as heliostats, 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 mounting can be done horizontally, vertically, or a combination of multiple axes.
