Rollix process

State-of-the-art process: 

  • Grinding: We offer enhanced reliability and accuracy over the entire lifespan of your application, with our unique grinding process for the raceway, and systematic pairing of the 2 rings with the different classes of balls or rollers allowing to pre-load our slewing rings. Rollix’s expertise in grinding allows to pair large diameter bearings to +/- 5 microns.
  • Sealing: Our unique and patented sealing designs, combined with grinding and use of specific greases, have allowed us to create our “Evolution” range of life greased slewing ring, perfectly meeting the requirements for reducing the total cost of the product over its service life and respecting the environment.
  • Our R&D: Each function of the slewing ring is tested and validated on our benches. Our unique wind power bench is capable of testing wind turbines of over 20 MW. The feedback provided allows us to model our unrivalled calculation tool.
