Vogelsang Tension Bushings are hollow cylinders with a full-length longitudinal slot. This slot permits compression and expansion. The Tension Bushings have chamfered ends to facilitate insertion and removal. They are roll formed from high carbon spring steel material which has high elasticity, resilience, and wear characteristics. These material qualities are enhanced by thru-hardening in heat treatment. Vogelsang Tension Bushings are close tolerance and self-retaining parts. They are manufactured to a controlled, oversized diameter. This process and the inherent elasticity of the material provide constant radial tension for tight fit – even if the bore hole becomes enlarged.
Tension Bushing insertion is easily accomplished either manually or with an arbor press. Field replacement can be performed simply with a hammer and drift.
