Backlash free swivels

This swivels are a precise mechanical product that are used for the connection between cylinder rod/base and external structures. This particular type of joints guarantees backlash free connection, so it is used in vibrational tests and application driven by large actuators.


Bosch Rexroth develops and manufactures backlash free joints of various sizes (from 50 kN up to 2000kN). Thanks to its features the Bosch Rexroth swivels are the perfect product to equip your servo actuator for testing purpose. Built with turned, drilled, milled and grinded steel, they are completely machined. The main benefit is that Bosch Rexroth has designed and built anti rotation devices for all the size of the backlash free swivels.


The preload and backlash can be easily adjusted thanks to a special design that include a screwing SuperBolt™.
