What Does a Slew Ring Do?

A slew or slewing ring enables machinery to perform rotational movements. They combine traditional bearing elements with gears and mounting holes, which allows the ring to connect directly to a structure for maximum versatility.

Excavators lift, turn and spin frequently to move materials or perform other duties, requiring a system that can rotate as desired. The slew ring's hybrid format facilities this movement in an excavator, allowing heavy construction equipment to swing and turn smoothly, even when handling heavy loads.


Where Is the Slew Ring in an Excavator?

A slew ring mounts horizontally between the excavator's house and undercarriage. This placement lets the machine and its attachments swing nonstop as necessary.

These rings typically consist of an inner ring, rolling elements, two seals and an outer seal. Each part plays an essential role in the system's function. The outer ring connects with the excavator, offering stability, while the inner ring facilitates movement with the ball- or roller-style bearings. The seals help lubricate the rolling elements properly.


Excavator Slew Ring Sizes

Slew rings are used across many industries for numerous machines and purposes, and their size and design depend on the application. For example, excavators and other heavy machinery require strong, durable slew rings to meet rigorous construction demands. The slew's size will be proportional to the excavator itself, ranging from a few inches to several feet in diameter.

Finding a high-quality slew ring for your excavator is essential. A poorly-constructed bearing increases the risk of downtime or safety issues. That's why SlewMaster creates custom slew rings geared to your specs.
