A new edition of the Reali-Slim thin section bearings catalog from Kaydon Bearings, an SKF Group company, features more than 400 new part numbers and an expanded line of stainless steel thin section bearings. Other useful additions include ISO radial ratings and a user’s guide to Kaydon’s exclusive Reali-Design® software for bearing analysis and selection.
The 136-page Catalog 300, last updated in 2010, features key dimensions and capacities for the full range of Kaydon’s standard thin section bearings, from Reali-Slim (inch and metric) to Ultra-Slim and small turntable bearings. This range includes angular contact, radial contact and four-point contact, both open and sealed.
The new edition adds easy-to-read color cross-sections and illustrations, while retaining helpful sections on load analysis, torque, mounting, lubrication, and more. It also includes an easy-to-use Request For Proposal form for standard or custom bearings. Catalog 300 is available in print or as an interactive PDF that can be downloaded from the company’s website, www.kaydonbearings.com.
The website also offers other useful tools for design engineers, such as a user-friendly Thin Section Bearing Selector that lets them search by dimensions (bore, O.D., width) or part number, and download 2D or 3D drawings in a choice of 38 different file formats. They can also download Kaydon’s Reali-Design and Reali-Design MM software, which saves hours of tedious computations, accurately computes life and load analyses, and determines safe operating speeds. This innovative software includes training modules, data sheet creation, and a CAD-ready DXT library.
