Cone Drive Slew Bearing

Precision all around.

Cone Drive’s slewing drives are designed around our slewing bearings (also known as slewing rings) that can react to all axial and radial forces and resulting tilting moments created in the most challenging applications. Our slewing drive and bearing designs benefit from Cone Drive’s over 90 years of gear design and manufacturing expertise. All the technical benefits combined with Cone Drive’s industry leading quality standards make Cone Drive’s slewing solutions the ideal choice as a structural component for performance critical and heavy duty applications.

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


The Cone Drive Product Development Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility directly adjacent to our Traverse City, Michigan manufacturing location. The lab has the capacity to test a wide range of gear reducer products, for both Cone Drive products as well as those manufactured by other companies. The lab includes capability to run a wide variety of tests including load testing for evaluating reducer performance and operating efficiency.
