Slewing Solutions

Industry leading slewing bearings.

Cone Drive’s slewing drives employ precision motion technology that provides a large ratio in a single stage of gearing. The slew bearing (also known as slewing rings) and gears are assembled into a low profile, self-retaining, and ready-to-install housing optimized for weight versus performance. Our highly-adaptable slew drive gearboxes also feature strong shock resistance, long life performance, smooth rotation, bearing protection, and sealed drive options.

As a global slew drive and slew bearing manufacturer we have the capability to provide custom solutions for specific applications. We have a long and proud engineering history starting in 1925 and have worked at the cutting edge of slew gear technology ever since.
