Why can slewing bearing be used in CT scanners

CT (Computed Tomography) scanners are medical imaging devices that use X-rays to produce detailed images of internal structures of the body. The patient is positioned on a table that can rotate and move through the scanner. The scanner itself also needs to rotate around the patient to capture images from different angles.

The use of materials that meet strict medical standards in slewing bearings for CT scanners is necessary to ensure the safety of the patients and the reliability of the equipment. CT scanners are used for diagnostic purposes, and any errors or contamination caused by the bearings could lead to inaccurate diagnoses, harm to the patient, and damage to the equipment.


Slewing bearings are used in the rotating gantry of the CT scanner, which houses the X-ray tube and detectors. The gantry needs to rotate smoothly and precisely to capture images from different angles. Slewing bearings are designed to handle heavy loads and provide smooth rotation, making them ideal for this application.

slewing bearings used in medical equipment such as CT scanners are typically made from materials that meet strict medical standards for cleanliness, biocompatibility, and chemical resistance. This ensures that they are safe for use in a medical environment and do not introduce any contaminants that could harm the patient.
