Kinematics slewing drives safely and quietly power movement in medical equipment for easy adjustments and stable rotation. With their small, fully-enclosed envelopes, our slewing drives are very simple to use in all types of medical equipment.
Slewing drives control rotation in medical equipment for increased stability and higher precision. Moving parts in machines, tables, and hospital beds need to support body weight and adjust in different situations, and dependable slewing drives keep repeated movements smooth. Slew drives for medical applications can be customized to offer safe, quiet, and accurate rotation in one maintenance-free package. Kinematics drives can hold loads and put into exact positions with accurate repeatability. With the safety of zero backlash and ultimate precision, patients and medical professionals get consistent and reliable performance.

Hospital beds and tables need to be able to support loads and offer easy positioning at different angles. Slewing drives are bolted into the beds and tables to smoothly control adjustments and hold weights in any position. Strength in support is extremely important for medical beds, as it is helps prevent injury and provide stability. Kinematics drives are strong enough to consistently lift and lower higher-rated beds with little to no maintenance and quiet operation.
In mammogram procedures where pictures are taken and imagery needs to be clear, accuracy is paramount. Mammography machines use slewing drives to rotate movable plates while keeping the whole machine stable to avoid injury. During a mammogram procedure, the plates move up and down and then rotate around the base of the machine to move from side to side. Having a reliable slewing drive is critical in mammography machines, as repeated precision is necessary for getting accurate results.
