Kaydon Bearings unveils bearing selector tool

Muskegon, Michigan, USA…Kaydon Corporation Bearings Division has added an interactive bearing selector to its website.

“The selector makes it easy for engineers and designers to search our standard thin section bearing catalog 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.”

It also makes it easy to find a part’s dimensional information and 3D drawings if the user knows all or a portion of a part number. The selector includes Reali-Slim® open, sealed, stainless steel, and metric bearings; Endurakote®-plated bearings; and Ultra-Slim® extra thin section bearings.
