WireX® Wire Race Bearings Save Weight
WireX wire race bearings provide the load capacity of steel bearings with 60% less weight. They are proven solutions in military and commercial applications that demand both weight savings and corrosion resistance. WireX bearings reduce weight with wire raceways in aluminum (or steel) support rings and also minimize increases in rotational torque.
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.
