Kaydon Bearings Application Guide
Applications for Kaydon thin section and slewing ring bearings are too numerous to count, but this helpful 8-page Application Guide features more than 160 in a variety of markets and industries. Also described are Kaydon's wide range of bearing styles, broad experience and worldwide technical support.
How Mounting Can Optimize Slewing Ring Bearing Performance
Mounting a slewing ring bearing in the proper structure is crucial to properly distributing bearing load and stress. Without an adequate structure, bearing performance is likely to suffer. So can the performance of the seals, pinions, gears, and bolts. Therefore, mounting should be considered very early in the design process.
Why Bigger isn’t Always Better: the Case for Thin Section Bearings
For applications that demand maximum performance despite space and/or weight restrictions, designers should give serious consideration to thin section bearings. While conventional bearings often have more load capacity, thin section bearings have more than enough for a wide range of applications and offer exceptional design flexibility with opportunities for significant reductions in overall system size and cost. A new white paper from Kaydon Bearings examines thin section bearing styles and features, with a discussion of design considerations, fit, lubrication, and other useful information.
