The application of slewing bearing
  • Slewing bearings are widely used in construction machinery, including earth-moving machinery, excavators, dismantling machines, stackers, graders, rollers, compactors, rock drills, tunneling machines, etc.

    1. Trailers: This type of bearing is used in many applications, the most important of which are in the transport industry, agricultural trailers, irrigation systems and airport luggage racks. In vehicle applications, the bearings transmit axial loads, radial loads and torque. In other applications, they mostly transmit axial loads.

    2. Wind power: Wind turbine bearings usually include yaw bearings, pitch bearings, and transmission system bearings (main shaft and gearbox bearings). ZYS provides customers with yaw bearings and pitch bearings. The yaw bearing is installed at the connection between the tower and the cabin, and the pitch bearing is installed at the connection between the root of each blade and the hub. Each wind turbine uses one set of yaw bearings and three sets of pitch bearings.

    3. Solar energy: Rotating solar panels are a good solution to increase energy. Due to the very compact design of the ZYS bearing, it can supply solar power fields.

    4. Medical equipment: The high-precision, low-noise, long-life, and high-reliability series of medical equipment spindle turntable slewing bearings developed by ZYS Bearings have been widely used in large medical equipment such as gamma knives, CT machines, and MRI machines.

    5. Industrial robot: ZYS turntable bearings are installed in the joints of the robot. This structure can achieve incredibly high-precision rotational motion.
