Kinematics slew drives are powered with hourglass worm technology to give the maximum survivability load-holding capability as well as increased efficiency and accuracy. Unlike standard worms which touch only 1 tooth, our hourglass worm engages 5-11 teeth on the pitch line of the ring gear from the hourglass thread. This increased tooth engagement gives the gearbox enormous strength and power.

We manufacture a wide variety of model sizes, performance ranges and mounting characteristics. We currently make 9 base model sizes from 75mm to 800mm in diameter. The performance load characteristics range from 6kNm to 220kNm of holding torque, 200Nm to 63kNm of output torque, 500Nm to 271kNm of overturning moment load capacity, and gearbox reduction ratios of 30:1 up to 156,600:1. The mounting can be done horizontally, vertically or a combination of multiple axes.
