Kaydon Bearings celebrates 75th anniversary
05.2016

Muskegon, Michigan, USA...Kaydon Bearings, today, is celebrating its 75th anniversary with events planned for its facilities in Michigan, South Carolina, Ohio, Mexico, China and Brazil.

The Kaydon Engineering Corporation was founded in May, 1941 by A. Harold Frauenthal in Muskegon, Michigan, and its original location is still a Kaydon facility today.

During the past 75 years, Kaydon Bearings has built a tradition of solving the world's most demanding bearing challenges, as seen with the invention of Kaydon Reali-Slim® thin section bearing, still an industry standard for a variety of industries including aerospace, aviation, medical equipment, heavy equipment, industrial machinery, medical systems, radar, renewable energy, robotics, and semiconductor manufacturing.

Now an SKF Group brand, Kaydon engineers continue to innovate to meet the changing needs of industry and work closely with customers to meet performance requirements.

The Kaydon thin section bearing product line includes Reali-Slim® and Ultra-Slim®; Real-Slim TT® turntable; and custom thin section designs. Slewing ring bearings include four-point contact, eight-point contact, cross roller, three-row roller, and wire-race configurations. Kaydon also provides slewing ring bearing remanufacturing and replacement services.
