KE Maintenance Free Slew Drive

    KE Maintenance-Free Applications
    Applications

    The KE style slewing drive is a maintenance-free drive with an IP66 rating designed to reduce the cost of labor in the field while also offering greater protection. Common uses include solar trackers, medical equipment, satellite and radar dishes, clean room equipment, and marine applications.

    KE Maintenance-Free Specifications
    Specifications

    Our base model sizes deliver performance ranges from 38kNm to 48kNm of holding torque, 1,400Nm to 10kNm of output torque, 33kNm to 67kNm of tilting torque, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. It can be horizontally or vertically mounted. See more specifications.

    KE Maintenance-Free Reliability
    Reliability

    Our KE drives offer complete protection from environmental particles such as dust, dirt, sand, and even water through an IP66-rated enclosure. Our testing equipment and procedures allow us to provide a 30-year performance guarantee.
    Kinematics slewing drives have earned ISO 9001, CE, REACH, and TUV certifications, and all materials and components meet those standards.

    KE Maintenance-Free Performance
    Performance

    Kinematics slew drives are backed by a patented hourglass worm technology for greater strength and accuracy. Most standard worms touch only one tooth while our worms engage 5 to 11 teeth. With increased tooth engagement comes better power and reliability. Learn why the hourglass worm is the best.
