Premature failure is a common fate for large-diameter bearings in heavy-duty applications where rotations are frequent. In big rotating equipment such as cranes, excavators and tunnel boring machines, a slewing ring bearing must simultaneously handle a complex load spectrum that covers diverse combinations of thrust, radial and tilting moment loading.
