Dual Axis Slewing Drive

    SDE Dual-Axis Positioner Applications
    Applications

    The most common slewing drive application for the dual-axis slewing drives are dual-axis solar trackers, such as heliostats and concentrated photovoltaics (CPV), and satellite or radar dishes. Other applications include automotive lifts, robotic arm positioners, and stage equipment.

    SDE Dual-Axis Positioner Specifications
    Specifications

    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 drives can be mounted horizontally, vertically, or on a combination of multiple axes. Get more information.

    SDE Dual-Axis Positioner Reliability
    Reliability

    Kinematics SDE dual-axis slewing drives are guaranteed for a 30-year field life of precise 3D positioning. SDE drives create an efficient and reliable solution in a single drive. We qualify all of our components and raw materials using standards set by ISO 9001, CE, REACH, and TUV certifications to maximize field life.

    SDE Dual-Axis Positioner Performance
    Performance

    Kinematics slew drives use patented hourglass worm technology to give maximum control and movement support. Our worm gears engage 5 to 11 teeth on the pitch line of the ring gear from the hourglass screw, which is higher tooth engagement than standard worms, giving the gearbox greater stability and strength.
