bearing   343 / 392



Usually, Oiles bearings are press-fitted into the housing. For this procedure, a mandrel and a press machine are used. In case of a metallic bearing with large press fitting interference, chamfer outer diameter of the bearing and inner diameter of the housing. Then use a mandrel to facilitate easier press fitting. ■Press fitting procedure : Calculation of press fit force When a bushing is press fitted into a housing with some interference, the bushing I.D. becomes smaller than the original size. Amount of this inner diameter change depends on the dimension of the housing, the bushing (thickness and shape), and the material.Testing by dimension and by material is required in order to determine precise change. However, it is not feasible to conduct tests for all the combinations of materials and dimensions. Therefore amount of inner diameter change is determined based on the below formula.
