Shrink Fitting Simplifies Electric Motor Assembly

Posted by Laurie Applegate on Aug 9, 2017 8:05:00 AM



A new Technical Bulletin released by eldec LLC discusses the use of induction heating for shrink fitting components of electrical motor assemblies. Since induction heat can uniformly and gently heat the outer housing of the motor without overheating any one area, shrink-fit connections are simple to assemble and disassemble. The process can be adapted for:

  • Joining electric motor housings
  • Joining motor shafts and rotors
  • Short circuit ring brazing
  • Other brazing applications
