New Online Selector for Slewing Ring Bearings
Kaydon Bearings introduces new interactive slewing ring bearing selector
Kaydon Bearings has added an interactive slewing ring bearing selector to its website.
The selector makes it easy for engineers and designers to search the Kaydon slewing ring bearings catalog 390 by part number, bearing type, internal and external dimensions, application, gear type, axis of rotation, static load, speed, and tangential force per drive requirements. Search results include load charts and 3D drawing downloads that make the user’s bearing selection process easier.
The selector includes four-point contact, eight-point contact, cross roller, and three-row roller slewing ring bearings. Learn more about Kaydon slewing ring bearings at ...

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.
