1.Unpack and check the attached certificate and the label on the slewing bearing to confirm that the model is consistent with the selected one.

Carefully check the appearance to confirm that the slewing bearing is not damaged in the transportation process, such as serious rust, deformation, etc.; Confirm whether there are soft belt marks and gear runout position marks (gear requirements quenching or customers have special requirements).

3. The installation bracket should have enough stiffness to prevent the slewing support from working normally due to the deformation caused by the insufficient steel of the bracket.

4. The installation surface must be clean, smooth, and free of iron scraps, raw edges or other debris. 

5. Bolts with appropriate strength registration should be selected for installation of slewing bearing. Bolts and nuts shall comply with GB3098.1 and G B3098.2 standards. Spring washers are prohibited.
