Slew drives, consisting of a ball or roller slewing ring, a drive train, and a completely enclosed, sealed housing, are ready-to-install systems and supercede procurement of many individual parts.

Often IMO engineers have introduced the idea to customers; the more convenient solution of using slew drives. We would be pleased to develop individual solutions together with you.


IMO slew drives are used around the world; application areas include the following: As steering transmission in crane traveling gears and heavy-duty transporters, in lift platforms, in grippers, tongs, and other rotary devices in the construction machine sector. In the renewable energy sector slew drives are used for the tracking of parabolic trough power stations, solar trackers, and solar thermal tower plants.

Internationally patented slew drives from IMO have won many prizes for product innovation at inventors exhibitions.

In this heavy-load module transporter each individual axle is articulated through an IMO slew drive under the highest axial and radial forces and tilting moments. The size WD-H 0300 with steering moments of 27,000 Nm, as shown in this example, is predestined for this application.
