Kaydon brings engineering expertise to the design and manufacture of bearing solutions and assemblies for demanding applications. Founded in 1941 as a designer of customer-specific bearings, Kaydon continues to lead the way in custom and pre-engineered bearing solutions for military and commercial applications. With ball bearings, roller bearings, slewing ring bearings, and turntable bearings ranging from 0.75" to 240" diameter, Kaydon can design a product to meet your most challenging bearing demands.

We start with a basic ball or roller bearing component, choosing from our large selection of Reali-Slim® and Ultra-Slim® thin section bearings, or from our wide selection of slewing ring bearings. Using unusual materials, such as titanium or Pyrowear 675, or more standard materials including AISI 52100 and stainless 440C, Kaydon can design a bearing that will simplify the assembly and manufacture of your equipment. We offer a wide variety of:

  • bearing sizes (from 0.75" to 240" diameter)
  • bearing materials
  • separator types
  • cross sections
  • internal fit ups
  • bearing lubricants
  • corrosion resistant bearings
  • angular contact bearings
  • bearing coatings (Endurakote®, zinc, nickel and more)
