Kaydon markets


In punishing operating environments like mining, heavy equipment must take a beating and come back for more. Kaydon slewing bearings and SKF Cooper split-to-the-shaft roller bearings have been helping mining owner/operators minimize downtime and maximize productivity for decades. Kaydon and Cooper, both SKF Group brands, are leading global manufacturers of bearings that increase profitability in surface and underground mining operations around the world.

Kaydon slewing bearings for mining equipment

With outer diameters of up to 282" (7.2 m), Kaydon slewing bearings are ideal for shovels, excavators, stacker reclaimers, and other large mining machinery.

Kaydon remanufactures and provides new replacements for any OEM's bearing, with fast delivery and as-new or better performance. Mine operators have found they can save up to $250,000 compared to an OEM replacement bearing.

New and refurbished bearings are readily available from our ISO 9001:2008 certified plants.
