Assembly of Shrink-Fits

Heating temperatures of shrink-fits

Sponsored Links

Shrink-fits are assembled by heating them to temperatures where the expansion exceeds the interference. Required temperature heating can be calculated as

dt = δ / α di                               (1)


dt = temperature heating (oC, oF)

δ = diametric interference (mm, in)

α = coefficient of linear expansion (m/moK, in/inoF)

di = initial diameter of hole before expansion (mm, in)

Diametric interference can be calculated as

δ = dt α di                               (2)
