We can quickly and accurately install shrink fit bearings using our Induction Bearing Heater.
Induction Bearing Heater is now available for hire from Nybro. This innovative machine allows for the efficient and accurate heating of bearings and parts for shrink fit installations. Induction heating is far superior to traditional methods of heating. Methods such as Oil Baths have been proven to be dangerous with a strong possibility of catching fire, emitting smoke and toxic fumes plus contaminating the bearing. Direct heating will damage the bearing material and Conduction heating can also be ineffective because it is difficult to heat the bearing evenly. Its uses costly propane or acetylene and is known to be inaccurate and inefficient. Finally, Press fits are not always suitable; some bearings can only be fitted properly using a shrink fit.
