IMO has a leading position in supplying Slewing Rings to the bottling industry. Our products ranging from 200 to 5,200 mm (7,8 to 204 in) externally toothed Slewing Rings, are used in machines for cleaning, filling, equipping and labelling.
We supply leading manufacturers of blow moulders for the production of PET-plastic bottles. Because of the high circumferential speed, the Slewing Rings are equipped with closed cages.
Adjustment devices of take up and take off units of printing machines need high accuracy. Cross Roller Slewing Rings fulfill all required criteria perfectly and are perfectly adaptable for this application.

In Cross Roller Slewing Rings, the rollers are arranged crosswise and run in a square sectioned raceway.
