Convenient repair at the work site
On the manufacturing floor, there are many machines that use press-fit bearings. CNC machines, conveyors, pumps, fans and almost anything with an electric motor will eventually need bearings replaced. Induction heaters are bulky and heavy, often requiring the transport of a 250-degree part across the shop floor. ConeMount bearing heaters are lightweight (less that 7 pounds) and portable, so you can perform preventive maintenance and repairs anywhere. Everything you need to properly install press-fit bearings is in the transport bag, so you can keep your equipment running with minimal downtime.
Proper Installation means longer life
ConeMount bearing heaters can accommodate inner-race diameters from 3/8 to 18 inches, which means you can service just about anything in your facility. It takes between 1 and 12 minutes – depending on bearing size – to reach optimal temperature, a fraction of the time using other methods. By heating the bearing, the diameter increases enough to easily slip the bearing onto the shaft without hammering or using a press. When the bearing cools, it is flush, square and tightly attached to the shaft. Improper installation is the leading cause of bearing failure. Methods such as blow-torching can distort the bearing and oil baths cannot be used on sealed bearings. Installing bearings with ConeMount will lower cost, reduce chatter and vibration, shorten downtime and increase the life of your equipment.
