Main shaft

Whether functioning in a geared, hybrid, or direct drive design, a wind turbine’s main shaft arrangement must withstand axial and radial loads and operate under harsh, continuously changing conditions. 

Depending on the individual requirements of your turbine design, SWS can provide solutions for flexible and rigid main shaft bearing arrangements. For flexible arrangements, SWS provides different self-aligning bearings together with the appropriate housing and sealing system. For rigid bearing designs, the product range is even wider.
