Fenghe slewing bearing

Calculation for slewing bearing type selection

Several factors need to be considered when selecting a slewing bearing, including load, speed, environmental conditions, installation space and budget. Here are some key considerations when choosing a slewing bearing:

  • Loading: Determine the maximum load and dynamic load required to be supported. This includes vertical loads, horizontal loads, and inclined loads, etc.
  • Speed: Understand the maximum speed of the system to ensure that the selected slewing ring can meet the performance requirements.
  • Environmental conditions: Consider the environment in which the slewing bearing is located, including temperature, humidity, corrosiveness and other special conditions. Choose high-durability supports that can withstand these conditions.
  • Installation space: Make sure the selected support meets the installation space requirements, including radial and axial dimensions.
  • Budget: Consider the project budget and select a slewing bearing that meets the cost budget and provides the required performance.
  • Accuracy requirements: Determine the accuracy level of the slewing bearing according to the needs of the application. For applications requiring high precision, it may be necessary to select high-precision supports.
  • Maintenance requirements: Consider the maintenance requirements of the slewing ring, including lubrication, inspection and frequency of component replacement. Choosing a design that is easy to maintain can help reduce operating costs.
  • Manufacturer Reputation: Choose manufacturers with a good reputation who produce products of reliable quality and provide good after-sales service.
  • Safety Requirements: Ensure that the selected support complies with applicable safety standards and regulations.
  • Customization Needs: If the application has special requirements, a custom slew bearing may need to be considered to ensure it meets specific design specifications.
