Press Fitting Orkot Bearings

Fitting with Hydraulic Press or Centre Pull Jacks

If a bearing is to be press fitted, installers should ensure that they have the equipment available to deliver adequate force to press the bearing fully into the housing.

The ease of fitting will vary dependent on the finish of the housing. This should be considered when calculating the force required.

When press fitting a bearing it is important that it is in line and square with the bore before the operation beings. An adequate chamfer on the housing will prevent shaving of the bush.
