Slewing drives or slewing gears with worm drive is made by a cast iron case which houses a worm screw that engages and rotates the slewing ring inside: this system not only ensures precision of motion, but also the irreversibility of rotation under load. These products are extremely versatile due to their construction and allow the transmission of high radial and axial loads, as well tilting moments, with a very high transmission ratio between the screw and nut.
Slewing drives can be used in numerous fields of applications: from agriculture to general mechanics, such as tracking solar panels to radar bases, etc. as well as precision mechanics. The motorisation can be carried out by hydraulic motors or electric gear motors, allowing better control of the precision ofthe rotary motion. Slewing drives are a niche product, and complete the wide range of ISB products.
