Hourglass worm, high torque, fail-safe positioning
Mobile applications require specialized slewing drives that are reliable and fail-safe. Kinematics designs and tests its hourglass slewing drives for smooth, steady rotation under tremendous loads. While powering movement in mobile applications, our slew drives work safely and efficiently throughout every project.
For big projects using heavy machinery with maximum loads and high output torque, a safe and dependable slewing gearbox is critical. Kinematics drives are built to match the life of the vehicle and deliver options such dual worms, hydraulic motors, and enclosed housings. Mobile applications are often specialized, and Kinematics can manufacture customized drives for any project. Having a slewing drive designed that can withhold the heavy load of extremely large and potentially dangerous machines without sliding is crucial to efficient production and worker safety.

Mobile applications of slewing drives are often customized and used in a variety of markets. Construction equipment, utility trucks, man lifts, forestry machinery, mining equipment, and drilling machines all require a strong slew drive. Kinematics drives are powered by the hourglass worm shaft for 5 to 9 times the torque of a standard drive. Commonly used in heavy machinery, slew drives manipulate movement and allow for smoother rotation while providing radial and axial-force load-holding. Specific applications of slewing drives in the mobile market include:
