The bigger, the better? The new PRT-04

Anna-Theresa Schneider | 27. March 2020

In developing PRT-04, we paid special attention to maintaining weight capacity despite slimming. That is why we have analysed and measured the degree to which the PRT-01’s load capacity is actually exhausted in realistic applications. It turns out that the Version 01 slewing ring ball bearings are rarely used to their full load capacity and that the new PRT-04 only slightly reduces load capacity, so it is entirely sufficient for most applications.
