We are recognized as one of the renowned manufacturers of slew drives
Top Gear has designed slew drive series to enhance the rotary movement of various equipment’s. Slew drive series consists of wide range of drives suitable for hydraulic and electric prime mover with inbuilt parking brakes along with a drive pinion. Unique feature of slew drive has special bearing to take care of inertial, radial and thrust loads.
For Slew drive electric or hydraulic motor is used as prime mover
Depends upon the requirement and application
Slew drive is used for any machine having turning movement. Usually it is used with slew bearings which has got internal or external teeths and gearbox has pinion on output shaft that drives the big gear of slew bearing
Planetary gear box is used in slew drive
Normally slew drives are electric or hydraulic. Electric type has got shoe type brake or Negative electromagnetic brake on motor. Whereas hydraulic type has got multidisc hydraulic brake
Normally spherical or roller bearings are used in slew gearbox out put shaft to take care of high radial loading
Normally slew gearbox has got pinion with corrected profile to ensure full contact pattern with slew bearing gear
To adjust the backlash between pinion and slew gear the mounting of gearbox is made slightly essentric to adjust backlash precisely
Slew Gearbox is used for Stacker Reclaimer, Ash handling Reclaimer, Windmill, Tower cranes and excavators.
