Kaydon Reali-Slim Bearings
R.A. Rodriguez (UK) Ltd is the sole factory representative of Kaydon, an SKF Group brand, in the following regions:-
Kaydon Bearings is a well-known manufacturer of precision bearings and filtration products primarily designed for industrial applications. The company has a long history dating back to its founding in 1941 and has since established a reputation for producing high-quality and custom-engineered solutions for various industries. We are proud to supply the world-leading Kaydon bearings, renowned for providing exceptional design flexibility and capable of withstanding the most challenging applications.
One of Kaydon’s specialties is thin-section bearings, which are characterised by their low profile and light weight. These bearings are ideal for applications where space is limited, such as robotics, automation equipment, and aerospace systems.
The Reali-Slim bearings have a compact design making them smaller and lighter, with space and weight savings of up to 85%.
As thin section bearings have cross sections that don’t change as bore sizes increase, there needs to be no change in the space requirements, and little change in the weight of the bearing, even as the diameter of an application increases.
With a range of precision tolerance classes for optimal precision and design flexibility, these Kaydon bearings are specially designed with features that assure you of top performance in the most challenging conditions. Any bearing can be optimised to minimise friction, outgassing, contamination and even wear, without sacrificing bearing accuracy.
