Kaydon Corp. Bearings Division has unveiled its new website, www.kaydonbearings.com, and new brand message.

“The new site was developed with our customers in mind, providing more information and a clean, easy-to-navigate design,” said Brian Walters, Kaydon Bearings marketing manager. “It features an improved search function, more product and market information, and additional drawings, specifications, and downloads.”

The website also introduces Kaydon Bearings’ new brand message: Kaydon infinite™ bearing solutions.

“Research showed that our customers value our exceptional engineering expertise and willingness to create virtually infinite solutions for complex bearing challenges,” said Jeff Manzagol, president. “Our new brand conveys that, while also underscoring our position as inventor and leader in thin section bearings and North America’s leader in slewing ring bearings.”

The brand discovery process gathered input from a cross section of Kaydon personnel and feedback from customers.

“Our customers find Kaydon to be flexible, versatile, customer-oriented, and responsive,” said Walters. “They appreciate that we fill order volumes from one-offs to thousands, and that we provide a huge range and breadth of product types, sizes, materials, and options.”

“The discovery process made it clear to us that Kaydon’s unique offering is infinite solutions to the complex challenges no other supplier can solve,” said Walters.

Kaydon infinite™ solutions meet the exacting specifications of the aerospace and defense, heavy equipment, industrial machinery, medical systems, renewable energy, and semiconductor manufacturing markets. Product category offerings include Thinfinite™, Slewinfinite™, custom, and remanufactured bearings and assemblies.

Kaydon Thinfinite™ thin section bearing solutions, including Reali-Slim® and Ultra-Slim® bearings, save weight, create space, reduce friction, increase design flexibility, and provide excellent running accuracy in bore sizes from 1” to 40”.

Kaydon Slewinfinite™ slewing ring bearing solutions are ideal for optimal economy in a given envelope dimension; for heavy-duty applications requiring significant load-carrying capacity; for designs where precise positioning is critical; and for the unique requirements of wind turbines. 

Kaydon engineers design custom bearings and assemblies when a standard part won’t solve a particular challenge. Custom bearings are available in an infinite variety of materials, separator options, cross-sections, internal fit up choices, lubricants, corrosion resistance options and contact angles.

Kaydon is a leading remanufacturer of slewing rings and other anti-friction bearings.
