Drill Press Tri-Roller Swaging Tool

1) Install tri-roller swaging tool (1) into drill press chuck or vertical milling machine.
2) Adjust spindle speed – recommend approximately 100 rpm for initial pieces (Note: This can later be increased up to 250 rpm, once operator proficiency has been developed).
3) Install bearing into housing (4) per the drawing specification. Operating instructions
1) Position part (sub-assembly – bearing & housing) on the flat surfaced locating fixture (primary) (2), FIG. 1 in bearing bore.
2) With part resting on locating fixture slowly lower the spindle — ensuring roller fixture bushing is piloted into the bearing bore (6).
3) Start spindle and apply light pressure for initial revolutions to allow rollers to center in bearing groove (5).
4) Repeat 1-2 times applying normal arm pressure and maintain swaging tool engagement for approximately 5 seconds.
5) Release pressure and withdraw tool from bearing/housing sub-assembly.
6) Inspect swage per the requirements of the drawing or swaging specification.
7) Repeat steps 4 through 6 until swage is complete.
8) Turn sub-assembly over and repeat steps 1 thru 7 to complete swaging on opposite side except use angled (conical) surfaced locating fixture (secondary) (3), FIG. 2 for this operation. Note: Do not grease rollers or bearing lip – Use light machine oil only. Clean debris from tool rollers frequently using an air gun. If application requires installation with sealant or primer, remove excess from bearing groove prior to swaging.
