Thin-Section Bearings

May 24, 2007
Reali-Slim thin-section bearings are designed to create space, save weight, reduce friction, and provide running accuracy.

The product line comes in a series of seven open and five sealed bearings ranging in bore diameters from 1 to 40 in. An improved calculation method gives Reali-Slim bearings higher dynamic capacity ratings. The method integrates calculations with actual test data instead of estimated bearing life. Improvements vary with type and size, with increases for Type X (four-point contact) ranging from 31 to 77%.
