Bearing selection for low-speed applications
Low-speed applications, such as wind turbines, robots, cranes, gun mounts, and radar antenna mounts, can present bearing design challenges. Bearings may have special lubricant needs, require modification or need to be custom designed. Find out which types of bearings are typically used in low-speed applications and 10 key performance requirements designers should consider when specifying them.

Four-point contact bearings do triple duty while saving space
Four-point contact ball bearings are ideal for applications with oscillating movement at slow to moderate speeds. With a unique design and ability to handle radial, thrust, and moment loads, a single four-point contact bearing can replace two angular contact bearings. Learn more about the advantages of four-point contact bearings, including space, weight, and cost savings, and greater accuracy.

Bigger isn't always better: the case for thin section bearings
Thin section bearings are an excellent choice for applications requiring high stiffness, accurate positioning at low shaft speed, or a combination of radial, thrust, and moment loads. In many cases, a thin section bearing can do the job of a bigger, heavier bearing while providing space and weight savings. Learn more about thin section bearing sizes, configurations, and construction, and design considerations and maintenance practices, in this Kaydon white paper.

Nine questions to ask when specifying a slewing ring bearing
In applications that require a bearing to support a structure while it rotates (e.g. cranes, radar, tank turrets), premature bearing failure can put people and equipment at risk. The bearing's support structure, mounting, installation, and even storage are all factors in a bearing's success or failure. Find out what key questions a designer should ask when specifying a slewing ring bearing.

How to extend the life of your slewing ring bearings
Premature failure is a common fate for large-diameter bearings in heavy-duty applications. Fortunately, regular maintenance can prevent 96% of slewing ring bearing failures. Learn about a routine maintenance plan and the four warning signs of bearing wear or failure.

Stop bearing corrosion before it starts
Corrosion can have a serious impact on bearing life, negatively affecting a machine's performance, productivity, and operating costs. Fortunately, there are steps you can take during the design stage to protect your bearing throughout its life.

Key trends in bearing lubrication
Bearings and lubricants continue to become more advanced. Learn how to choose the right lubricant to achieve optimal efficiency.

Installing large diameter bearings on rotating equipment and oscillating applications
Many things can go wrong during and after installation of a large diameter bearing. Learn what simple steps you can take during installation to prevent costly mistakes.

Kaydon's new capacity calculations for thin-section bearings
Learn about Kaydon's method for calculating dynamic radial load ratings for thin-section ball bearings, using the contact stress and the number of stress cycles per revolution. The new method is more accurate, with new numbers proven by five years of test results.

Gearing up your bearings
Some drive systems can be simplified by incorporating a gear onto a slewing ring bearing. Read about the benefits, challenges, and proper installation of gear bearings.
