Slewing Ring Bearing

 Slewing bearings
        Slewing bearings comprise an inner ring and an outer ring, one of which usually incorporates a gear. Together with attachment holes in both rings, they enable an optimized power transmission with a simple and quick connection between adjacent machine components. The bearing raceways, in conjunction with the rolling elements and cages or spacers, are designed to accommodate loads acting singly or in combination, and in any direction.
Selecting the appropriate slewing bearing can be a challenge, particularly if there are stringent technical, reliability or economic demands. In these cases, for example, monton application engineering service can provide advanced calculations and simulations utilizing state-of-the-art analyse methods to optimize and validate the best design to meet the customer requirements.
 
        Also offers worldwide a wide range of added value services for slewing bearings, including remanufacturing. A slewing bearing with only 30% left of its calculated service life can be well worth remanufacturing. monton's standardized remanufacturing processes can extend significantly the service life of critical equipment.
 
       All of these combine to improve rotating equipment performance and reduce total cost of ownership.
