When your design calls for thin-section bearings, call KAYDON, the world's leading manufacturer. Our REALI-SLIM® thin-section bearings are designed to create space, save weight, reduce
friction, and provide excellent running accuracy. That lets you downsize your design and cut manufacturing costs without sacrificing bearing life or performance. This latest Catalog 300 makes it easier than ever to find the right thin-section bearing for your application. Choose from our wide range of popular cross-sections and bore sizes (up to 40") or specify a custom design.
The Reali-Slim® product line consists of a family of seven open and five sealed series of thin section bearings ranging in bore diameters from 1.000 inch to 40.000 inch. Series range from .187 x .187 inch to 1.000 x 1.000 inch in cross section. Open bearings are available from stock in three configurations.
Reali-Slim® Bearing Types
Type A = angular:-
- The Type A Bearing is also a conventional design. It features a circular pocket separator and a thirty degree contact angle (see Figure 7) along with approximately 67% of a full complement of balls. The chief benefit of the Type A bearing is that it provides greater thrust capacity than a Type C or Type X bearing. Because of its counterbored outer race, Type A bearings have unidirectional thrust capacity. Thus, this bearing should be mounted opposed to another bearing to establish and maintain the contact angle, and to support reversing thrust loads.
Type C = radial:-
- The Type C Radial Contact Bearing (Figure 6) is a single row radial ball bearing of conventional design. It is a Conrad-type assembly, which means that it is assembled by eccentric displacement of the inner race within the outer race which permits insertion of about half of a full complement of balls.
Type X = four-point:-
- Standard bearing lines are most often designed to handle either radial or axial load conditions. The unique feature about the Kaydon Reali-Slim® Type X four-point contact bearing line is that the gothic arch geometry of the inner and outer races enables a single bearing to carry three types of loading (radial, axial and moment) simultaneously. This makes it the bearing of choice for many applications since a single four-point contact bearing can often replace two bearings, providing a simplified design. Type X bearings may also be furnished with an internal diametral preload for those applications requiring greater stiffness or zero free play. This is accomplished by using balls that are larger than the space provided in the raceways. The balls and raceways, therefore, have some elastic deformation in the absence of an external load.
Sealed bearings are available in Types C & X only.
