Slewing rings for the forest and farming sector

Rollix supplies heavy duty slewing rings for the forest industry.

Rollix, slewing ring expertise for the forest industry

Rollix is a world leader in the supply of slewing rings to the forest industry since the 1970s.

Rollix slewing bearings stand out with their unique preload and stiffness ensuring the performance of the customer’s machines and the required service life in most extreme applications. Rollix slewing rings are also specifically designed to withstand shocks and high speeds.

Forest machines require durable components. Therefore, the world’s best-known manufacturers have chosen Rollix for the quality and robustness of our products.

  • Over 40 years of expertise in slewing ring manufacturing for forest and farming machinery
  • Rollix offers customised solutions and a standard range adapted to all types of forest and farming equipment
  • Numerous references and historical partners in the field such as PONSSE & KOMATSU FOREST.

Why choose Rollix for your forest machine slewing rings?

Forest machines are used in harsh environments and need to be sturdy, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in temperatures as low as -30°C and as high as +40°C.

With a unique track grinding and systematic pairing process, Rollix slewing rings feature controlled preload and torque, ensuring that all our products feature a limited amount of play in the ring and a longer service life. Our specially designed seals also protect the rings from external elements.

Our slewing rings can withstand impacts and the very high speed of debarkers as well as the temperatures of the coldest forests.

Our parts ensure high reliability and optimum productivity for our customers operating forest or farming machines.

We use deep-treated materials for the manufacture of our slewing rings.
