Muskegon, Michigan, USA...A number of application requirements impact the selection of an appropriate slewing bearing. These considerations include, among others, rotational speed, protection from contamination, accuracy, frictional resistance, and temperature range of the operating environment. With attention to all relevant design requirements and with help from the bearing manufacturer, a slewing bearing can be specified that meets or exceeds all application requirements.

A new white paper from Kaydon Bearings describes the nine steps to take to select the appropriate slewing bearing, from determining maximum bearing loads to determining gear capacity and more.
