Advanced Machine & Engineering Announces Ambush Hydraulic Squeeze BushingsApril 1, 2012
Ambush Hydraulic Squeeze Bushings are used to clamp moving shafts to fixed housings in a wide range of applications. Type ASA Squeeze Bushings are designed to resist axial forces only. They are commonly used in fixturing and reciprocating shaft applications. Type AST Squeeze Bushings are designed to resist torque as well as axial forces. One or two holes for dowel or roll pins have been provided in the mounting cap to resist the torque and to ensure that the squeeze bushing does not move.
Each Ambush is made of high quality alloy bronze or spring steel with a special plastic molded over the slotted squeeze surface. Hydraulic pressure acts upon the molded sleeve between the seals. The hydraulic pressure compresses the bushing radially over the entire length between the seals. This squeeze action locks the shaft to the bushing with high efficiency without introducing any movement to the shaft. Accurate clamping can be accomplished in many fixture, machine tool and general applications, the company said.
