Tower crane slewing ring is an indispensable part of the tower crane slewing mechanism. We all know that after using the slewing ring for a period of time, there will be a certain degree of wear or consumption. The reason why the tower crane slewing ring consumes fast is:

1. In the choice of slewing bearing, the model is not appropriate, so in the process of work there will be speed, rotation flexibility and load wear.

2. Slewing support in the design and material method, resulting in fast consumption of slewing support.

3. The normal consumption of slewing bearing, slewing bearing in the absence of any defects, there will be the problem of consumption.


Turntable bearings for tower cranes usually adopt small size four point contact ball turntable bearings or double volleyball turntable bearings, the diameter of which is not more than 2 meters.

5. Tightening bolts should be carried out symmetrically and continuously in the 180 direction, and the last pass should ensure that the bolts on the circumference have the same pretightening force.
