“The bearing selector makes it easy for engineers and designers to search the standard thin section bearing catalog by dimensions or part number,” said Les Miller, Kaydon VP of engineering. “Results include 2D and 3D drawing downloads, making the selection process easier.”
The bearing selector lets users search by bore size, outside diameter, and width minimums or maximums, or both, in inches or millimeters. It also makes it easy to find a part’s dimensional information and 3D drawings if the user knows a part number or just a portion of it. The selector includes Reali-Slim open, sealed, stainless steel, and metric bearings; Endurakote-plated bearings; and Ultra-Slim extra thin section bearings.
Selector results can be further refined using Kaydon’s Reali-Design engineering software, which computes basic life and load analyses and safe operating speeds.
