Slewing Ring Bearings Market: Introduction
A slewing ring bearing, also referred to as slewing ring, is a rotational plain bearing or rolling component bearing which withstands high but slow oscillating or slow turning loads. The slewing ring bearing has a thin cross section while the diameters are typically of one meter or sometimes even more. They can be similar to large aircraft surface control bearings. They generally use two rows of rolling components and three race elements namely one inner ring and haves of two outer rings which clamp axially with one another. They have gear teeth which integrate with the outer or inner surface. The material used for slewing ring bearings depend upon the end use applications. Few of the materials which are sued in slewing ring bearings are titanium alloys, stainless steel, nitrided steel, steels for low temperature, structural hardening steels, aluminium based alloys and plastic and composite material. They are widely used in UK, Germany, France, USA, Japan, Sweden, Spain, Australia, Italy and Sweden.
Slewing Ring Bearings Market: Applications
The slewing ring bearings are widely used in industries such as aerospace industry, heavy equipment industry, defence industry, medical equipment, industrial machinery, semiconductor manufacturing and renewable energy. They are also largely used in wind turbines, construction, packaging and bottling industry, water treatment, mining equipment, transport, robots, power loaders and tunnel machine equipment, hydraulic grippers, shovel and digging wheel excavators, wood processing equipment, forest industries, Radar military, lifting equipment and offshore cranes, marine cranes and bulk handling.
Slewing Ring Bearings Market: Growth Drivers
The aspects driving the growth of the slewing ring bearings market are-factory automations owing to new technologies, the expansion and growth of the end user industries such as healthcare, solar energy, increasing demands of the wind turbine with respect to robust design and other advantages of slewing bearings.
