This project is deals with design and fabrication of a hydraulic bearing puller, which is used for removing bearings from the shaft and the bearing cup with the help of a hydraulic Initially the bearing shaft is held between two fixtures. The hydraulic is passed to the direction control valve. The top fixture is moves up wards, so that the bearing is removed from the shaft.

The hydraulic bearing puller is used to removing the bearings in the shaft by holding the bearing shaft in between two fixtures. One of the fixtures is movable and the other one is fixed. The principle of operation is the same as the conventional simple press. The difference is being only in the type of drive and the type of fixtures used. The following points reveals why we have to make use of this type of press for removing bearings.
• •

Hydraulic bearing puller reduces the manual work. This type of machine reduces working time in removing bearings.

By using this machine the bearings can be removed in the various lengths of shat (up to 600mm).

the required speed of the piston is obtained by adjusting its knob. Uniform application of the load gives perfect removing of the bearing. 4. The remaining portion of the shaft touches the bottom fixture. The top fixture in the piston had inserted to its required position rod pushes the bearing which is placed on the shaft. A bottom fixture is fixed on the bottom plate by using bolts and nuts.PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION The hydraulic bearing puller is used to removing bearings in the shaft up to a length of 600mm. Bearing Removing procedure: The shaft is kept vertically between the top fixture. When the oil is passed to the valve. The bearing shaft is kept in the top of the fixture. there will not be any further down ward movement. At the same time the pump is loaded to get the pressure required and the hand operated valve is manually to move the piston. It reduces the production time 3. When the bearing has removed to its original position. Then the valve is brought to the output position in which the air moves the piston upward and the shaft is removed. It reduces the manual work 2. the up/downward movement of piston is controlled by the hand liver. Damages to the bearing due to the hammering is prevented . In the hydraulic bearing puller the main thing being the pressure developed is done with the help of a pump The oil in that pump is passed to the cylinder. ADVANTAGES 1. The bearing shaft is connected to the top fixture. When the oil is passed to the valve.

Cylinder stroke length is constant 3. Need a separate compressor APPLICATIONS • Bearing Pressing Operation in all industries • Bearing Removing operation in all Industries • Sheet metal bending in sheet metal industries • Sheet metal bend removing in all industries • Punching operation also done • Riveting and metal forming also done with the help of separated male and female die.5. Less skilled operator is sufficient DISADVANTAGES 1. It occupies less floor space 6. . Initial cost is high 2.
