Muskegon, MI – Kaydon Bearings Division has added an interactive bearing selector to its website, www.kaydonbearings.com.

“The selector makes it easy for engineers and designers to search our standard thin section bearing catalogue by dimensions or part number,” said Les Miller, Kaydon vice-president of engineering. “Results include 2D and 3D drawing downloads, making the selection process easier.”

The bearing selector allows users to search by bore size, outside diameter, and/or width minimums and maximums, 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 exclusive Reali-Design engineering software, which computes basic life and load analyzes and safe operating speeds.

Kaydon Bearings Division is a global manufacturer of standard and custom thin section bearings, high-level bearing assemblies, and slewing ring bearings for a wide range of manufacturing and process applications. The division is also a major supplier of remanufactured and new replacement bearings.

The division’s parent, Kaydon Corporation (www.kaydon.com), is a designer and manufacturer of custom-engineered, performance-critical products, supplying a broad and diverse group of alternative-energy, industrial, aerospace, medical, and electronic equipment, and aftermarket customers.
