Improper installation of roller bearings lead to premature failure. In conventional installation methods using a hammer, welding torch, press or oil bath, the workpiece is either damaged mechanically (raceway and shaft seat) or its metal structure and therefore its properties are changed.
The inductive heat shrinking process is ideal for even and controlled heating of the workpiece. This process is easy to use and on-site installation is possible, due to the portability of the device. The inductive heating process is energy efficient, environmentally friendly and safe for the operating personnel.
