Kaydon Bearings news

Kaydon bearings meet the challenges of robotics applications
08.2018

Muskegon, Michigan, USA...More and more, designers of robotics machinery are specifying Kaydon Bearings' Reali-Slim® thin section, slewing ring, and Reali-Slim TT® turntable bearings for their demanding applications. Kaydon bearings meet the requirements of the robotics industry by saving weight, reducing product design envelope sizes, and increasing design flexibility.

Robotics designers are challenged with maximizing payload and reducing interia in order to improve response and optimize power requirements. Kaydon Reali-Slim bearings deliver, with exceptional weight and space reductions compared to a standard ball bearing. Reali-Slim bearings simplify the design process with their constant cross-section regardless of bore diameter. Overall designs can be streamlined, with a single four-point bearing replacing a pair of angular contact bearings.

Kaydon slewing ring bearings offer exceptional rotational accuracy, load capacity, and long life, making them ideal for a six-axis robot's waist. The Reali-Slim TT series provides small-scale, thin section turntable bearings that are the perfect alternative to standard slewing rings when smaller size, improved accuracy, and faster installation are required.

Learn more about Kaydon bearings for robotics applications, and download the Kaydon Bearings robotics brochure to find out about specific solutions, including Robot-Technology GmbH's choice of a Kaydon thin section bearing for the Robocut laser cutter.
