Schaeffler Mounting Manager

The Schaeffler Mounting Manager supports you for ensuring the correct mounting of bearings with tapered bore and offers the following options:

  • it shows various mechanical and hydraulic mounting methods
  • it calculates the data required for mounting in relation to reduction in radial internal clearance, displacement and start pressure
  • it gives useful mounting advice
  • and it generates a list of the accessories and tools required

Schaeffler Mounting Manager

The Schaeffler Mounting Manager at a glance

To use all the advantages and possibilities of the Mounting Manager, select the parameters required for the calculation step by step. The application guides you in six easy steps to the final report.

  1. Bearing-selection
    Filter from general bearing types through specific series up to the bearing where you would like to receive mounting information.
  2. Bearing-seat
    If the bearing seat is a shaft, an adapter sleeve or a withdrawal sleeve – decide between the predefined values.
  3. Measuring & Mounting method
    The measuring method allows you to choose between axial displacement and the radial clearance reduction. Various alternatives are also available for the mounting method.
  4. Calculation options
    The Mounting Manager delivers exact results by entering various measured sizes. This step will be skipped in certain preselections, so that the result is displayed directly.
  5. Result
    Important mounting parameters such as joint pressure, the tangential stresses as well as other forces, will be listed for start and end positions. Nothing stands in the way of perfect mounting with the additional suggestions for components and tools listed.
  6. Report
    The final report summarizes all inputs values as well as the result. This report can be saved as a pdf or html document and printed if required.

Calculation possibilities for mounting methods

Bearings with a tapered bore are mounted either directly on the tapered shaft or journal, or by means of an adapter sleeve or withdrawal sleeve on the cylindrical shaft. The internal clearance is set either by conventional means using feeler gauges or by means of the axial displacement.

a) Mounting of bearings with tapered bore by measurement of the axial displacement

The bearing is placed in its starting position on the tapered bearing seat with a hydraulic nut. The required starting pressure defined for each individual bearing is set in the hydraulic nut by means of the digital manometer. The displacement as indicated in the table can be measured either by means of a depth gauge, slide gauge or a dial gauge. However, the final measurement of the radial internal clearance is always done by using a feeler gauge.

This mounting method:

  • gives considerably shorter and simpler mounting
  • offers very high security and accuracy
  • allows the correct mounting of sealed bearings

b) Mounting of bearings with tapered bore by measurement of the reduction in radial internal clearance

When the bearing is pushed onto the tapered seat, the inner ring is expanded and the radial internal clearance is thereby reduced. This reduction in radial internal clearance is valid as a measure of the firm seating of the bearing. It is measured by means of a feeler gauge.
