The rotation of the lifting mechanism is realized on a slewing ring or a slewing drive. The above picture shows a common lifting mechanism with slewing rings. The slewing ring with external gears is equipped with a yellow protective cover to protect the operator and at the same time to protect the equipment. Near the rotating mechanism in the picture, grease is flowing everywhere, quickly losing, the equipment is messy, the grease is contaminated and lost, resulting in frequent grease filling, high maintenance costs and high equipment failure rates.


The spur gear slew drive of Unique transmission can solve the above mentioned problems for customers.


Spur gear slew drive is also called gear type slew drive, it’s composed of slewing bearings, gears, housings, adapter flanges, support bearings, seals and other components. After reasonable design, component manufacturing, debugging, assembly and other processes, the products have the ability to withstand axial force, radial force, tilting moment torque and at the same time has a certain gear ratio, referred to as slewing drive.
