Methodology for Press Fit Validation 2012-36-0452

Industrial applications frequently use interference between shafts and holes to fix parts together. The present work shows the methodology for validation of Finite Element calculus for press fitting a shaft in a dust shield hole. In the case of study the dust shield can be easily hit by shocks during transport and handling of the product. The shocks would change the position of the parts and consequently the new position could become a quality problem. The process of verification determines the factors which become the project more robust using the technical of Design of Experiment (DOE). The test and the computational simulation are shown as parallel way to determine the appropriate friction coefficient which could be used to predict the assembling and disassembling force for current project as well as the new design with similar features.
