9 Questions to Ask When Specifying a Slewing Ring Bearing

Aug. 4, 2016
Sponsored by Kaydon
In applications that require a bearing to support a structure while it rotates (e.g. cranes, radar, tank turrets), premature bearing failure can put people and equipment at risk. While slewing ring bearings have proven themselves countless times in such applications, designers must consider many factors when specifying them. The bearing’s support structure, mounting (including bolt strength, tensioning and hole patterns), installation, and even storage are all factors in a bearing’s success or failure. This new white paper from Kaydon Bearings, an SKF Group company, details nine key questions a designer should ask when choosing a slewing ring bearing.
