REMOVAL & EXTRACTION TOOLS
PORTABLE PULL OUT / PUSH IN (ASIR)
It is usually hard to remove tight-pressed bearing from its mount. Aero Staking ASIR, using mechanical principles of force distribution as: bolt/nut tightening, enables operator to quickly and effortlessly remove the bearing using ordinary wrench.
ASIR is very helpful while taking out, previously cut, old bearing from the bore or during bearing removal from housing in HOB applications.
This tool is being used ‘on wing’ and in constrained, hard-to-get-to places.
Aero Staking designed this tool to remove old or broken bearing from its mount (or housing) and also to appropriately (evenly) install the new bearing into the bore.
Improper bearing installation can cause damage to bearing; its failure can sometimes cause injury or death.
The aircraft maintenance mechanic would use this device in ‘on wing repair’ applications as well as ‘in shop’ repairs or at the level of bearings assembly in manufacturing processes.
Aero Staking also designed this tool to square install the new bearing in tight-fit holes. This tool properly, (perpendicularly) aligns the bearing and then safely pushes it into its proper depth determined by tool’s allowed travel.
DRILL PRESS ASIR (ASIR-DP)
This tool is used to pull out previously cut off bearing from bore or from the housing in HOB application.
Drill press or arbor operated device is used to remove old, cut bearing from its housing to properly install new bearing in the housing.
ASIR Drill Press utilizes:
- Arbor Press
- Drill Press
- Bridgeport / Jet / Kent or similar
- Knee type Mill
THE ADVANTAGE OF USING ASIR TOOLING, OTHER THAN EASE OF DISMOUNTING WORN BEARING, IS ABILITY TO INSERT BEARING INTO THE HOUSING PROPERLY AND EFFORLESY.
BEARING INSTALLATION OPERATIONS USUALLY INCORPORATE INTERFERENCE FITS; YET, IT IS REQUIRED TO INSERT THE BEARING PERFECTLY SQUARE. WITHOUT USING THE ASIR TOOLING TILTING, MISALIGNMENT OR BEARING DAMAGE CAN OCCUR
