Kinematics’ Worm Gears and Slew Drives

  • Overview
  • Technical Specs
Double Enveloping Worm Gear

    • DE Double-Enveloping Worm Gear Applications
      Applications

      Kinematics’ worm gears and slew drives can be customized per application and customer. Applications of these gears range from solar to mobile applications, including mining equipment, digger derricks, solar trackerswind turbines, medical bed equipment, and robotic arm positioners. Kinematics’ worm gears are designed for the smoothest rotation under maximum loads.

    • DE Double-Enveloping Worm Gear Specifications
      Specifications

      Kinematics offers a wide range of standard slewing gear models, suitable for many applications. Worm gears can be customized to any size from 30mm(1.18″) to 400mm(15.75″) gearset centerline dimension. A wide range of operating torques are also available.

    • DE Double-Enveloping Worm Gear Reliability
      Reliability

      Kinematics slewing drives are designed and tested to guarantee a 30-year field life. All aspects of engineering control are based on creating a low-cost, reliable solution. Using the same methods and procedures that earned us our ISO 9001, CE, REACH, and TUV certifications, we qualify all the raw materials, components and final assemblies to meet these standards.

    • DE Double-Enveloping Worm Gear Performance
      Performance

      Kinematics patented hourglass worm technology allows our gear sets to work consistently and accurately across a range of applications. Standard worms connect only one tooth at a time while Kinematics gears are made to connect 5 to 11 teeth, providing more strength and efficiency through long field life.
