Heavy Duty Vee Rings: An Alternative to Slewing Bearings – White Paper

Traditional slewing ring bearings are commonplace in wind turbines and heavy industries such as military and construction. However, they tend to be impractical for autonomous applications that are less load dependant, where a significant amount of preparatory work is often required to achieve a running solution.

Vee ring systems are among the technologies that offer lower maintenance costs and a better value for those types of applications.

In this six-page whitepaper, you will learn about vee ring systems and when to use them instead of slewing ring bearings. Key points include:

  • An introduction to vee rings and how they’re constructed
  • How to mount and install the rings
  • Ideal operating conditions
  • Maintenance strategies for gears, vee ring systems and slewing bearings
