Press fitting iglidur plain bearings made easy
Polymer specialist igus has developed a simple to use press fitting tool for plain bearings. This updated and improved version of the original press fit tool PT-1350, which is designed to be used for bearings with an internal diameter of 13 to 50mm, is to now include the smaller PT-0620 which is suitable for fitting bearings with an internal diameter of 6 to 20 mm.
Both fitting tools ensure that bearings are pressed into the housing within the H7 tolerance. They are easily adjustable ensuring that the bearing is held in position during fitting.
The self-centring positioning fingers ensure that the bearings are accurately aligned before being pushed into place. Being made from high-impact strength polymer means the push-in aid will not break, even when fitting the bearing with an impact tool while reducing noise, thus meeting the needs of those customers who require quiet operation.
