Muskegon, Michigan, USA...Kaydon Reali-Slim® thin section bearings will soon be hard at work roughly 250 miles (400 km) above the earth's surface. Kaydon Reali-Slim® thin section bearings are found inside the robotic arm of CAESAR, the Compliant Assistance and Exploration SpAce Robot being deployed to the International Space Station.

CAESAR will use its flexible, highly articulated arm to help stabilize satellites that orbit erratically or become unresponsive. Reali-Slim bearings were specified for the robot arm due to their compact design, outstanding precision, and ability to withstand the harshest operating conditions.
