How it works

By combining our mechanical know-how and operations experience with state of the art sensor technology and data processing we can fully exhaust the potential of your assets.

Productivity growth by using our adaptive controller - optimal material flow by constantly measuring the piles surface. Autonomous and unmanned operation by fully automatic positioning.

Why Radar?

The radar sensors we use are designed for very demanding environments such as those found in the cement or mining industry. This method is highly precise and the initial point to improve the whole process chain.

Slew Bearing Wear Measurement

Automatic, continuous and precise wear measurement

Our challenge

Slew bearings of all kinds of machines are subject to constant but uneven wear. The traditional method to measure that wear is to measure the gap between the upper and lower bearing race at specific points manually. This requires the machine to stop which causes regular downtimes.

Our solution

The thyssenkrupp Slew Bearing Wear Measurement System uses two probes with an accuracy of 10 μm below the main and counterweight boom to measure the distance between the upper and lower bearing races constantly. The difference between the initial, calibrated values and the actual values reflects the amount of wear within the given time period. Even though the system measures the distance constantly, it is recommended to use the automatic slew movement to measure the wear in an even more precise and comparable manner.

Our Plug and Play design

The monitoring system has been designed as a plug and play solution that can easily be retrofitted to existing machines, regardless of theirtechnical infrastructure & condition.

Your benefits

  • Less downtime due to maintenance and inspection

  • Less manual maintenance work required

  • High precision measurement at all slew angles

  • Machine performance insights

  • Data input for predictive maintenance
