spacer Kaydon Bearings - slewing ring bearings, turntable bearings
Kaydon Bearings - RK series

RK series slewing ring bearings provide Slewinfinite® solutions for applications where a large diameter and lighter weight are key. RK series slewing rings have a flanged cross-section on one or both rings that reduces weight and provides the equipment designer with Kaydon's unique Slewinfinite® flexibility, accommodating various configurations of adjacent mounting structures and bolting arrangements.

Kaydon Bearings - RK turntable 3D

Design features
The internal configuration is a deep-groove gothic arch raceway, which provides four points of contact with the balls, enabling the bearing to simultaneously carry radial, axial, and moment loads. The use of spacer balls alternated with load balls allows for lower rotational torque and superior performance in applications involving oscillatory movement. Integral face riding bearing seals are provided to assist in the exclusion of contaminants.

RK series slewing rings are offered in nongeared, internally geared, and externally geared configurations for maximum design flexibility. The gears are Involute Stub designs with 20° pressure angles, manufactured to AGMA Class Q5 quality and .005 to .015 inches allowance for backlash. RK series turntable bearings range in size from 20–47 inches OD (500–1200 mm).

Availability
RK series slewing rings are generally available from stock, and mating pinions for the geared versions are also generally available.

Applications
RK series Slewinfinite® slewing ring bearing solutions have been used successfully in a variety of light to medium duty applications including:

  • Small cranes, booms, and lifts
  • Industrial positioners and rotary tables
  • Chute swivels
  • Stretch wrapping machines
  • Bottle filling machines
  • Conveyors and related material handling equipment
  • Rotating displays
