Kaydon Bearings designs, manufacturers, repairs, and replaces slewing ring bearings at significant savings for thrusters, marine cranes, and winches. Cooper Bearings invented the split-to-the-shaft housed bearings found in marine propulsion shafts and generator drives. Kaydon and Cooper Bearings are SKF Group companies.
From military and offshshore support vessels to ferries, fishing boats and tugs, Cooper split-to-the-shaft bearings provide reliability and flexibility out at sea. Cooper split bearings range from the compact 100 series for high-speed, lightweight carbon fiber shafts to the 03 series for extreme loading conditions. IDTB series split tapered roller bearings handle axial loading caused by temperature gradients, hull movement, or reactions in couplings. Cooper split roller bearings are usually mounted in a cartridge that can swivel within the bearing housing, accommodating shaft misalignment without compromising the seal.
Kaydon slewing ring bearings meet the exacting specifications of applications including shipboard and portside cranes, thrusters, and winches. New and remanufactured replacement slewing ring bearings are offered in sizes up to 20 feet(6.1 meters) in outside diameter. Repair worn slewing bearings and save up to 60% versus new along with a full two-year warranty.
