Slew Ring Wind Turbine

Wind turbines provide a tremendous opportunity for clean, renewable energy to support our homes and communities. Harnessing their power requires understanding their primary components, including the slew ring bearings that maintain a smooth blade rotation pattern. With knowledge of the functions they support, you can make the best-informed decisions about your ideal slew ring solutions.

Why Are Slew Rings Needed in Wind Turbines? 

As it generates electricity through natural wind, your turbine is subject to varying conditions, including low-oscillation with higher loads. Slew ring bearings support blade rotation in horizontal- and vertical-axis turbines to keep them moving without undue friction. When connecting at pitch or yaw, they assist nacelle rotation. Joining them at the hub facilitates blade movement. Slewing rings are essential for effortless operation and making directional adjustments to capture maximum generation capacity.
