Tooling for Crimping 1815 Bearing into a 1.9” Dia. x 16 gauge tube
This tool is designed to push an 1815 bearing into a typical 1.9” diameter x 16 gauge tube, crimping the end of the assembly, securely locking the bearing into the tube.
- High quality Tool Steel
- Nest for roller assembly, to permit HANDS-FREE press closure
- Attaches to your adapter plate with three 5/16-18 screws on a 2.875” bolt circle, or can be clamped by the flange
- Will also work with 176 lb GenII® Semi-Precision, and various GenStar® Precision bearings by changing the center piloting knock-out sleeve
- Built by, and in stock at FRANTZ Manufacturing Company
- Press must have a method of consistently stopping its stroke to prevent “dog-boning” of the roller ends
- Must be capable of enough pressure to buckle a 1.9-16ga tube, but have a relief valve to limit that pressure to less
- 70 Rb or softer (BHN 125; 10 mm Ball, 3000 kg)
Tube Cut-Off Quality
- The amount of burr could be a critical factor when using this tool. While some have successfully eliminated a burr removal operation, if the burr is allowed to become too large (small ID), the flange of the bearing may collapse BEFORE the bearing can push through the burr.
- A FRANTZ Manufacturing engineer can evaluate your “worst case” cut-off, and press a bearing into one of your tube samples for your inspection.
- Does your burr look like this? Give us a call!
This tooling is recommended for use with FRANTZ bearings only.
