Product Announcement from USA Tolerance Rings
Retaining a precision ball bearing in a stamped housing with generous tolerance over life of stamped tool. Traditional interference fit in tighter housing bores may take up internal clearance in bearing.
The use of a Tolerance Ring yields a predictable assembly force well below that of the traditional interference fit so that bearing is retained axially and radially at the min./max. housing bore.
Extended life of stamping tool.
