Where are IMO slew drives produced?
All of our slew drives are produced at our headquarters and plant in Southern Germany, in Gremsdorf.
How quickly will I receive a quotation from IMO?
If you know the part number of the IMO product you require, we can normally produce a quotation on the same day or at least within 24 hours. If you do not yet know which slewing ring/slew drive is suitable for your application, please fill in the technical specifications sheet for slewing rings or slew drives.
How do I get a catalog of IMO standard slewing rings or slew drives?
You can download our catalogs in PDF format from the download area. If you want a print version of our catalogs, please fill in an inquiry.
Do you offer customer-specific slew drives and slewing rings?
Yes. Our application engineering specialists will be glad to work with you in order to develop the ideal slewing ring or slew drive for your application.
Can IMO slew drives run constantly?
Our spur gear SP series is unique on the market. The fully mounted, sealed assembly enables constant rotation. Like all worm gear drives, our slew drives in the WD series require short intermittent rest times within a minute in order to dissipate the heat that is created during operations. If bronze gears are used, the rest time might not be needed in some circumstances. Contact us to clarify whether a bronze version might be appropriate for your application.
Do you offer replacement parts?
Yes. Please contact one of our contact partners to find out about availability and prices.
Does IMO also deliver attachments (motors, rotary encoders, brakes etc.)?
Yes, we deliver numerous attachments for each type of slew drive. For rotary encoders, please fill in the technical specifications sheet for slew drives. For all other attachments, please provide the information in an e-mail. Our Sales team or application engineers will be happy to help you with the selection of the correct components.
How long are the delivery times?
Many of our standard slew drives and slewing rings are available for delivery immediately. Special designs may take up to 12 weeks to be delivered.
Is it possible to receive a guarantee for slew drives?
For slew drives that are specially recommended and approved by IMO's application engineers for a customer application, we offer a one-year guarantee. An extended two-year or three-year guarantee is available at extra cost.
Do IMO slew drives have corrosion protection?
Yes. We offer a wide range of corrosion protection options such as coatings, special seals, selected lubricating greases, and corrosion protection motors.
Is a slew drive with reduced flank clearance available?
Yes. The WD-L and SP series are available with reduced flank clearance for the gears and for the raceway. The WD-H series has no option for reduced clearance.
