This wide range of ORBIT planetary gear units is specifically designed for pinion and slewing ring drives. Successfully employed on tower cranes, shipboard and harbour cranes, wind generators and as steering drive on ship propulsion systems, they can be used in all applications where accurate positioning is called for. These ORBIT slewing drives are suitable for the most severe duties in every environment.
The slew drive of the ORBIT series provides the safest and most effective solution to all slew drive applications.
The ORBIT Slew Drive units have long been established in the cranes, excavators and special equipment industries, and today are highly appreciated by all the major manufacturers.
The design of the planetary units optimizes torque performance and radial load capacity, in order to give perfect meshing between pinion and ring gear. For accurate adjustment, some versions have eccentric mounting between the pinion axis and the casing axis. Their wide range of ratios enables the selection of motor size and type which best suits the customer’s requirements and application.
