The higher dynamic ratings capacity of the Kaydon Reali-Slim thin-section bearings are detailed in the company's newly published all-product catalogue. Developed specifically to save space and weight in a broad range of applications, the entire Reali-Slim range is available in the UK from R. A. Rodriguez.

Included in the catalogue are details for the seven open and five sealed bearings that comprise the series, including type C for pure radial loads, type A for radial and thrust loading and type X that accommodates radial, thrust and moment loading in a single bearing. The catalogue also introduces seven new sizes and, for the first time, includes Reali-Slim TT compact turntable bearings and Reali-Slim MM metric series bearings.

Sizing charts guide engineers through the preliminary selection of standard, metric or stainless steel Reali-Slim bearings. An application worksheet is also included that designers can complete and fax to R. A. Rodriguez for a customised application engineering review and bearing recommendation.

A hard copy of the new catalogue is available from the R. A. Rodriguez sales office on +44(0)1462 670044 or via email to . Alternatively a PDF version can be downloaded from the company's website at
