THE FUTURE TURNS.

What can we do for you?


Examples from our production facilities
Four-point bearings / Eight-point bearings
The four-point bearing is designed to withstand
average axial forces and overturning moments as
well as high radial forces.
Compared with the four-point bearing, the eightpoint bearing can support higher loads with the
same diameter.
These bearings are typically used in mechanical
and plant engineering, construction machinery,
wind power plants and ship loading / unloading
applications.

Ball slewing bearings


A robust bearing for classic applications.
The two-row ball slewing bearing features a simple
and robust design with adequate play.
This model can be used wherever overturning
moment loads with rapidly changing magnitudes
and positions are found, subjecting the slewing
bearing to continuously fluctuating loads. In contrast, the demands placed on the mating structure
are minimal.
This makes it ideal for use in conveyance systems
such as bucket wheel excavators.

THE FUTURE TURNS.

Three-row roller slewing bearings


These slewing bearing are used in highly demanding conditions. They feature low bearing play and
a uniform low force required to overcome bearing
friction in comparison with the force required to
overcome the inertia of the mass being supported
as well as high static and dynamic load-carrying
capacities. Demands on the mating structuring in
terms of levelness and stiffness are higher than for
all ball slewing bearing types.
Typical applications including rolling mill equipment, heavy-duty cranes and tunnel boring machines.

THE FUTURE TURNS.

Crossed roller slewing bearings


Crossed roller bearings are used to support high
radial forces as well as average axial forces and
overturning moment loads.
They also offer low or zero bearing play and uniform bearing friction. The demands on stiffness
and levelness of the mating structure are higher
in comparison with those placed on ball slewing
bearings.
These bearings are used in mechanical and plant
engineering, medical equipment and antenna
equipment.

12

Combination bearings
Combination bearings are used in conditions of
high axial forces and relatively low overturning moment loads.
In a combination bearing the roller race takes up
the axial loads, whereas the ball race handles radial forces and provides lift-off protection. These
slewing bearings are preferably used with large
diameters.
Applications include bulk handling and conveyance equipment.

Installation, lubrication, maintenance



Technical principles
The following instructions give you all the information you need to install and maintain a slewing
bearing from Hanse Drehverbindungen GmbH &
Co. KG. These instructions must be supplied with
your product or the end product or be incorporated into the installation and maintenance inst-

ructions for the product. All steps listed here must


be carried out by sufficiently qualified employees.
These instructions can also be supplied in electronic form and in other languages. The instructions
are included with every product.

1 Identification
1.1

13

Labelling

Every product made by Hanse Drehverbindungen GmbH & Co. KG is labelled by means of a rating
plate. The rating plate contains the specific product ID and order tracking data.

Additional data such as customer-specific lubricants, product names and part numbers can optionally
be added to the rating plate.

THE FUTURE TURNS.

1.2

Drawing numbers

The drawing number is specified by Hanse Drehverbindungen GmbH & Co. KG. It indicates the information that needs to be taken into account for adherence to the instructions. The elements of the
drawing number are explained in the example below.

2.1

Transport and storage

Slewing bearings are delicate machine elements and must be handled carefully. They
should be transported and stored in horizontal
position only without contacting other objects.
Large slewing bearings are stabilised by
means of transport frames.
This frame should only be removed after installation. Unless otherwise agreed, the slewing bearings are oiled and wrapped in film
before being delivered.
The packaging provides protection against
moisture ingress for six months in covered areas. Longer storage times, or long-term preservation, require use of a special preservative and special packaging (supplied upon
request).

2.2 Installation
2.2.1 Cleaning the slewing bearing
If there is an oil film or anti-corrosion coating on the surface it must be removed using a commercial
degreaser prior to installation. Paintbrushes or other brushes can be used for cleaning. Lubricated gear
teeth should not be cleaned.

CAUTION:
The solvent may not come in contact with
the seals or penetrate into the race system.
When cleaning the slewing bearing ensure that no solvent seeps into the ground or
otherwise burdens the environment.

15
2.2.2 Markings
The functional reliability of the slewing bearing is
mainly dependent upon the position of the filler
plug or the hardness gap (soft spot). The soft

spot marks the start and end points of the induction hardening transition zone and can be identified through the letter S stamped into the ring.

The hardness gap and filler plug must


be mounted in the region of minimum
load. This zone is 90 to the lever arm
axis of the load moment. Slewing bearings with gear teeth are marked with two
colour-coded teeth at the point of greatest deviation of the segment from circular form (maximum runout). The backlash should be adjusted at this point.

THE FUTURE TURNS.

2.2.3 Inspection of the mating structure


The bearing ring contact surfaces must be level,
dry, clean and free of grease. Foreign matter such
as paint residue, weld spatter and other irregularities must be removed. The mounting holes in
the slewing bearing must be aligned with the drill

holes in the mating structure. Planar and angular deviations must be determined and checked
against the allowable values given in table 1 to ensure compliance.

width.

2.2.4 Mounting bolts


The function and service life of the slewing bearing and the product are mainly determined by the
bolted joint. The slewing bearing must be fastened
using the bolts specified in the technical proposal.
Quantity, diameter, quality and tightening torque
specifications must be adhered to. Tightening

bolt grade
friction between threaded coupling elements and
friction between contact surface and nut

The values given in table 2 apply to lightly oiled


threads and contact surfaces with a coefficient
of friction (COF) of (thread) = (head) = 0.14. For
bolt grades M30 and higher the tightening torque

changes with changing COF. In such cases we


recommend using the following tightening procedure:

hydraulic tensioning device (torsion-free preload)


application of bolt preload through measurement of strain

Locking elements such as lock or spring washers


may NOT be used.
The bolt preload acts as a locking mechanism. For

torques for torque spanners should be taken from


table 2 and preloads for tightening using hydraulic
tensioning devices should be taken from table 3.
The tightening torques are dependent upon the
following factors:

large bolt preloads the allowable contact stress


between

nut / bolt head and slewing bearing


nut / bolt head and mating structure

can be exceeded. In this case quenched and tempered washers must be used.

ken into account in the sizing of the mating structure.

2.3 Assembly instructions

A: Check the mating structure.


B: Lay the slewing bearing on the mating structure.
C: Position the hardness gap (marking S) in
the region of minimum load.
D: Check that the slewing bearing is completely resting on the mating structure using a leaf
gauge (see table 1).
E: Check the sizes and grades of the mounting
bolts according to the calculation (for threaded
holes the bolts may not be resting in the thread
runout).
Insert bolts without force to avoid distorting the
slewing bearing.
F: Fasten the rings without external load.
G: First tighten the toothed ring (for slewing bearings without gear teeth first tighten the ring
with the point load).

H: Lightly grease the bolt thread to compensate for different coefficients of friction.

I: Tighten bolts diametrically.

J: Rotate the free ring by several turns.

K: Preload all bolts to the specified value.

L: Screw the free ring to the mating structure in


the same way as described above.

M: Before final tightening check the backlash


and set to 0.030.04 * module using a leaf
gauge or lead wire.

N: Relubricate the slewing bearing until fresh


grease exits from the sealing system.

CAUTION:
Welding of slewing bearings or welding in the vicinity of the mating
structure is not permitted.
Heating the slewing bearing deforms and impairs the function of the
bearing, resulting in premature failure. All grease nipples must be easily
accessible to enable relubrication through all lubrication points.

2.4 Initial test


Prior to initial operation the measurement described in section 3.6 must be carried out to determine the bearing clearance in new condition.

The bearing clearance increases under operating


conditions. It is required for later determination of
the service life limit.

3 Lubrication and maintenance

The gear teeth and the race system must be lubricated:

20

after each cleaning and


before and after long periods of downtime (e.g. winter shutdown)

Regular lubrication is mandatory. The race and gear teeth must be relubricated for the first time immediately after installation. Only use acid-free, non-resinous, water-resistant grease. Use lubricants in
accordance with table 4. Please contact our sales or application technology staff regarding use of other
lubricants or mixing different race greases.

3.1

Gear teeth

The slewing bearing is delivered with oiled gear teeth unless otherwise agreed. Lubrication must be
carried out immediately after installation. The same lubricant should always be used if possible. Prior
to lubrication the teeth must be cleaned. The lubricant should then be sprayed on or applied using a
paintbrush.

3.2 Race
Greasing supplies the race with fresh lubricant. Old lubricant contaminated with abraded particles, embedded dirt and condensed water is forced out. The grease reduces friction, seals and protects against
corrosion. When delivered the race system is filled with one of the quality greases listed in the table.



When relubricating use the same lubricant


Clean the grease nipple prior to lubricating
Slowly rotate the bearing during the lubrication process
Refill by adding grease until a fresh grease collar is built up in the bearing gaps or seals

3.4 Lubrication intervals


CAUTION:
Sufficient lubrication and regular lubrication intervals are
prerequisites for ensuring a long slewing bearing life.

The lubrication intervals are dependent upon:



the bearing model and


the operating and ambient conditions

The following guidelines generally apply for typical applications:



slewing bearings with ball race systems: every 100200 operating hours
slewing bearings with roller race systems: every 50100 operating hours

More frequent lubrication is required in the following conditions




aggressive and very dirty environments (e.g. seawater, steel mill equipment)
extreme temperature fluctuations
continuous rotation

For centralised lubrication systems the amount of grease must be adapted to the given operating conditions (min. 1g grease per hour of operation and lubrication point).

THE FUTURE TURNS.

3.5 Inspection of mounting bolts


CAUTION:
The mounting bolts must be regularly inspected.
Bolt damage leads to loss of bolt preload and hence necessarily to detachment of the slewing bearing.
The bolts must be tightened to compensate for settling phenomena in the
joints.
The specified bolt preload must be maintained. During inspection the
bolts must be relieved of external tensile loads. Initial inspection must be
carried out after approx. 100 hours of operation. After that inspection must
be carried out every 500 operating hours, or at least twice a year. The inspection interval should be adapted to the given operating conditions and/
or applicable product-based inspection requirements.

3.6 Inspection of race system


NOTE:
Regular inspection of the race system yields information on the wear condition of the slewing bearing.

22

The slewing bearings have a certain amount of play (clearance) in as-delivered condition. Wear of the
race system increases the play and lowers the superstructure.
The bearing clearance is made up of the following components:


effects from the connecting structure


elastic deflection of the bearing
the actual bearing play

For determining the increase in bearing clearance the tilting clearance must be determined prior to initial
use. Subsequent measurements should be made every 1000 operating hours, or at least once a year. If a
significant increase in clearance is measured the inspection intervals must be shortened. If the maximum
value has been reached the bearing may no longer be used and a replacement bearing must be installed.
Important Information
We do not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from:

failure to follow these installation and maintenance instructions or


errors or omissions in the distribution of these contents to third parties.

The technical properties of your slewing bearings can be found in our documentation or the respective technical proposals. Should you have any problems or questions our sales team or application
technology staff would be pleased to assist you further.
