Slewing ring bearing is the most widely applied astronomical devices bearing type. It can be found in telescope, VLT(very large telescope), observatory, radio telescopes, etc.

The slewing rings used on right ascension and declination of telescope belong to light series thin type slewing ring. The precision requirements are particularly high, and there are technical requirements on pre-tightening, stiffness, and friction torque, so design and processing is very difficult.

Astronomical Devices bearings

Sometime astronomical devices bearing such as the telescope bearings will be used in extreme environment like the Antarctic, so slewing bearings for astronomical telescope need to be produced with special material and processing method, in order to withstand extremely low temperatures.
