Slewing Drive Rotational Package

Rotation of a payload requires that it has structural support, bearings with which to rotate around, load bearing drive components, a primary mover, and a motion controller. Many components act on one or another facet of this equation, while Kinematics' slewing drive incorporates the entire package in one, tight, easy-to-install...


Slewing Drive Versus Linear Actuator in Solar Tracking

Slewing drives have a myriad of advantages over linear actuators in solar tracking. These include height of structure, overall angle of solar tracking rotation, and costs of (i) purchase, (ii) installation, and (iii) operations and maintenance. Because slewing drives sit on the center axis rotation of the torque tube drive li...


Hourglass Slewing Drive Best for Mobile Application

Mobile applications represent many unique and challenging load scenarios for effectively handling and rotating the payload. These applications include man-lifts, cranes, utility trucks, sewer equipment, tire hands, oil tools, forestry fallers, steering, and military vehicles, among others. These crucial applications often exp...


How Better Consumer Segmenting Can Increase Energy Efficiency

Changing consumer behavior is no small task. Despite utility companies’ best efforts to encourage energy efficiency, many consumers resist making changes to reduce their energy consumption. According to the latest research by McKinsey & Company (McKinsey), very modest behavioral changes could lead to significant savings ...


Overcoming Market Barriers to Advance Energy Efficiency

The United States has greatly improved energy efficiency over the past several decades. In fact, energy consumption is almost half of what it would have been without efficiency initiatives. That is great, but there is a lot of room for improvement. So how do we get there and what is standing in the way? According to a...
