Original Press Release:
Kaydon Introduces Line of Miniature Bearings
MUSKEGON, MICH. ...JULY 18, 2005...Kaydon Bearings Division has introduced a line of miniature (< 1") bearings which offer exceptional performance and dependability. The bearings are designed specifically for service in demanding, high-speed applications, such as medical, dental, commercial aviation/aerospace, lab instrumentation, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
All bearing components are manufactured to exacting quality standards, including bearing assembly in class 10,000 clean rooms under class 100 laminar flow benches. Dimensional and functional accuracy are in accordance with ABEC and ISO standards. Special attention is given to balls, raceway geometry and finish, cleanliness, and retainer design, resulting in outstanding bearing performance, even in extreme service environments.
The bearings also provide design flexibility and versatility, with a wide selection of steels, ceramic rolling elements, closures, mounting configurations, cages (retainers), and lubricants to meet the application's specific needs and optimize bearing performance and longevity. Preloading either radial or angular contact bearings increases rigidity, improves running accuracy and prevents ball skidding at very high speeds and during acceleration or deceleration.
To further enhance quality, bearings are packaged and shipped in hermetically, vacuum-sealed synthetic pouches which protect against contamination, humidity, lubricant deterioration, and in-transit damage. Custom packaging can also be arranged.
A comprehensive catalog (Catalog 320) is available in print or on-line versions, which includes part numbering system, detailed engineering and performance data, and installation advice.
