Bearing installation and commissioning

The basis for a long service life of the slewing bearing starts with professional installation. In order to counteract premature bearing failure, the installation parameters must be strictly adhered to. Our experts will support you on site to ensure that your slewing bearing reaches its maximum service life.

One of the important parameters is the flatness of the bearing connection surfaces. Depending on the size and type of the bearing, flatness according to DIN 1101 must be observed. Our experts are trained in the use of modern laser measuring devices. This means that you can already assess on-site whether your connection surface meets the requirements.

We assist you with:

  • Measurement of the connection surfaces up to a diameter of 25,000 mm
  • Any position of the connection surface (horizontal / vertical / inclined)
  • Planning reworking by machine


The primary objective of installation is to install the slewing bearing in compliance with the specified parameters so that it can be put into operation as quickly as possible.

We support you with:

  • Handling
  • Bearing positioning
  • Gearing alignment
  • Bolting
  • Setting the backlash
  • Connection of the lubrication system


Even after installation, there are still important work steps to be carried out.

We support you with:

  • Test runs
  • First load measurements
  • Running characteristics
  • Evaluation of the contact pattern of the gearing
  • Basic measurements
  • Re-lubrication
