Design and layout of bearing assembly: housing

Bushes

KS PERMAGLIDE® bushes are pressed into the housing and ixed radially and axially. No further measures are required. For the housing bore, we recommend:

  • Roughness depth Rz10
  • Chamfer fG 20° ±5°
    This chamfer facilitates force-itting.

Flange bushes

In the case of lange bushes, the radius on the transition from the radial to the axial part must be borne in mind.

  • Flange bushes must not be in contact in the radius area.
  • The lange must have suicient support when under axial loads.

Attaching the thrust washers

Recommendation:

  • A concentric it is ensured by the recess in the housing (Fig. 3)
    • See dimension tables for the diameter and depth of free cuts
  • Unwanted rotation with the shaft is prevented by means of a register pin or countersunk screw (Figs. 3 and 4)
    • The screw head or register pin must be recessed by min. 0.25 mm from the sliding surface (Figs. 3 and 4)
    • See dimension tables for size and position of bores.
  • If no recess can be made in the housing:
    • Secure with several register pins or screws (Fig. 4)
    • Use other methods for fastening.

Rotation prevention is not always required. In various cases, the static friction between the back of the washer and the housing is suicient.

Other fastening methods

If the press it of the bush is insuicient or pinning or screwing is uneconomical, low-cost fastening methods can be used as an alternative:

  • Laser welding
  • Soft-soldering
  • Gluing; please see the note below

Attention:

The temperature of the running-in or sliding layer must not exceed +280°C for the KS PERMAGLIDE® P1 and +140°C for the KS PERMAGLIDE® P2. Adhesive must not reach the running-in or sliding layer. Recommendation: Obtain information on gluing from adhesive manufacturers, particularly concerning the choice of adhesive, preparing the surface, setting, strength, temperature range and strain characteristics.
