Product Announcement from Kinematics Manufacturing, Inc.
Kinematics slewing drives are designed and tested to guarantee a 30-year field life. All aspects of engineering control are based on creating a low-cost, reliable solution. Using the same methods and procedures that earned us our ISO 9001, CE, REACH, and TUV certifications, we qualify all the raw materials, components and final assemblies to meet these standards.
Kinematics slew drives are powered with patented hourglass worm technology to give maximum survivability load-holding as well as increased efficiency and accuracy. Unlike standard worms which touch only one tooth, our hourglass worm engages 5-11 teeth on the pitch line of the ring gear from the hourglass thread. This increased tooth engagement gives the gearbox enormous strength and power.
Typical slewing drive applications for this open housing slewing drive include man-lifts, utility equipment, turntable applications, digger derricks, and steering applications. This application is excellent for low cost manufacturing that doesn't need to be covered or requires daily maintenance and checks.
Our base model sizes deliver performance ranges from 3kNm to 220kNm of holding torque, 200Nm to 63kNm of output torque, 500Nm to 271kNm of tilting torque, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. The mounting can be done horizontally or vertically. The drives are available with one ot two worm shafts for increased torque.
