Miniature and instrument bearings are normally made of either stainless steel or chrome alloy steel. National Precision Bearing offers stainless steel for applications that require corrosion resistance, and 52100 chrome steel for maximum fatigue life. These materials are heat-treated to achieve optimum hardness and dimensional stability, and are suitable for most applications.
Engineers have infinite® engineering experience and expertise—on average, each has 20 years experience in bearing engineering. It’s no wonder Kaydon engineers have a proven track record of solving the world’s most demanding bearing challenges.
Typical bearing suppliers provide standard solutions and average performance while requiring a high minimum order quantity. The Kaydon process is different. Our engineers are accessible and flexible, applying their infinite® expertise whether it’s a catalog bearing or custom, and whether the order is for one or thousands.
Kaydon engineers specialize in a given industry (e.g., aerospace, medical, heavy machinery) and, unlike at other suppliers, follow a project through product design, manufacturing, and testing. This provides an in-depth understanding of product and material performance and selection. When customers require stronger, lighter, smaller, faster, and/or quieter bearings and assemblies, they know they can count on Kaydon engineers for the ideal application-specific solution.
