Slewing bearings for global logistics

Automotive engineering

As flexible modes of freight transport, lorries are at the centre of global logistics. The increasing demand for transport capacity is met by ever larger modes of transport. This introduces a unique set of challenges for manufacturers of semi-trailers and trailers since these transportation vehicles must be particularly agile on the narrow streets of our cities.

Slewing bearings by thyssenkrupp rothe erde are a key component for controllable axes. They also come in a turntable edition to be used with trailers. Drawing on their many years of experience, our engineers develop economical solutions to ensure freight transport remains safe and efficient.

The reliability, durability and ease of use of the slewing bearings made by thyssenkrupp rothe erde not only benefits the transporting of loads, but also of people. They can be found as reliable central swivel joint bearings and motor bogie bearings in many trams and articulated buses.
