Conical bushes are also known as cores, taper, taper- bush, taper lock, or casquillos cónicos. Our conical bushings are very well adapted to the pulleys and pinions that we also sell in order to achieve the diameter which interests the customer in each of the cases.
Its denomination basically consists of four numbers that range from 1008 to 5050 which is then followed by another number that is the inner diameter which is required by the customer. These are also delivered in cardboard boxes which indicates that their numbering and inside of it include the screws for their fixation and also a sheet with the assembly instructions. These casquilloscónicos are made up of the GG25 cast iron and their finish is phosphate.
To install the bushings-
- First you need to remove the protective coating from the core of it, outside of the bush and bore of the hub. After you ensure that the mating tapered surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and free from oil as well as dirt, insert the bush in the hub so that the holes line up.
- then you have to oil the thread and all points of grub screws, or thread, and under the head of cap screws. Now you need to place the screws loosely in the holes threaded in the hub.
- Now you are required to clean the shaft and fit hub and bush to shaft as one unit. Then locate in the position required by remembering that the bush will eventually grip the shaft first and then the hub will be slightly drawn on the bush.
- Then by using a hexagonal wrench you need to tighten all the screws gradually and alternatively until they all are fully secured. Then use a piece of pipe on the wrench in order to increase the leverage.
To remove the bushings-
- First slacken all of the screws by several turns. Then remove one or two according to a number of jacking off holes. Then insert the screws in the jacking off holes after oiling thread and point of grub screws of thread and under the head of cap screws.
- Then you need to tighten the screws until the bush is loosened and assembly is free on the shaft.
- Then remove the assembly from the shaft
- For normal drives a key is not needed so use a hammer against the large end of the bush.
- After the drive is running under load for a short period stop and check the tightness of all screws.
- Then fill empty holes with grease to exclude dirt.
