New for 2021?
SGSD Series Spur Gear Slew Drives – made in the UK – ask for details!
Slewing drives are designed for slow moving applications (2-3 rpm) such as:-
Truck mounted cranes Access platforms Turntables Solar tracking devices Satellite communication systems Small wind turbines (yaw axis) Materials handling devices Turnover & assembly jigs
Due to the performance characteristics of worm gearing they are not suitable for high speed, continuous operation with long duty cycles. The SGSD systems will be better suited to this sort of application.
Dual axis drive, high precision and zero backlash units will be imported for specific projects.
QCB can offer various electric and hydraulic motors and gearboxes to suit.
