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 was designed for bearings with internal diameters of 13 to 50mm, now includes the smaller PT-0620 tool that is suitable for fitting bearings with bores of 6 to 20mm.
Both fitting tools ensure that bearings are pressed into housings with H7 tolerances. They are easily adjustable to ensure that the bearing is held in position during fitting.
The self-centring positioning fingers ensure that the bearings are accurately aligned before being pressed into place. Being made from high-impact strength polymer means the tool will not break, even when fitting the bearing with an impact tool, while also reducing noise.
