More Solar Power Plants Increasing ROI Through Single-Axis Tracking Systems

Kinematics attended the 9th Annual International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference and Exhibition (SNEC 2015) in Shanghai last month and impressed many customers with the solar tracker reliability that comes with the use of slewing drives. The conference also initiated conversations about the solar power industry and ...


Kinematics Has Gone Lean for a Better Manufacturing Process

Kinematics has completed implementation of a lean manufacturing system to reduce costs, increase quality, and improve interactions between suppliers and customers. In lean manufacturing, the system constantly adjusts to inconsistencies in an attempt to achieve perfection. The principal idea of lean manufacturing is developme...


Mounting Made Easy: The Kinematics Spherical Adjusting Base

Slewing drives can make solar trackers more efficient and functional, but they need to be mounted appropriately for maximum, reliable use. When a slew drive isn’t mounted square and level on its base, it can add tension to the whole system. This can lead to fatigue and cause damage in a short amount of time. Additionally, t...


Waste Management

The waste management industry holds a very unique set of demands for collecting, hauling and dumping waste materials. Any prime mover must be capable of operating at very high speeds. It must also be reliable, cost-effective, and able to work in the dirtiest environments. Kinematics manufactures slewing drives to handle waste pr...
