Mechanical Pullers

Mechanical Pullers

Mechanical pullers are dismounting tools, steel made, that remove parts such as bearings, coupling hubs, rings, or gears from a shaft. The pullers have legs, typically two or three, which circle the back or inside of a part. They also have a forcing screw that centers up against the end of a shaft.

As hand tools require human power to run, they are always available. There is no need to worry about recharging batteries and power outages. They are lighter, more compact, and more convenient when traveling.

What are Mechanical Pullers

Mechanical pullers are industrial tools used to remove mechanical parts such as bearings, couplings, and gears from shafts and or other components. Mechanical pullers typically use a set of jaws and a screw. Other models use wedges or a clamping action for the gripping action. The puller applies an outward force to the component to separate it from the main element. 

The primary purpose of a mechanical puller is to remove components from a part without damaging the member or the part itself, especially for bearings and other precision components, which get easily damaged when not removed properly. Pullers are also helpful in removing stuck parts due to corrosion, wear, or other causes.

Mechanical pullers are made from steel or aluminum in various shapes and sizes. Mechanical pullers are essential for many industrial applications as they can save time and effort when removing parts is needed.

Choosing the correct type of mechanical puller depends on the size and weight of the part pulled and the force required to remove it. A puller that is too small may not be able to generate enough force to remove the component, while a puller that is too large may damage the component or part. 

Types of Mechanical Pullers

The two most common mechanical pullers are jaw pullers and bearing pullers.

Jaw pullers are hand tools used to pull stuck components apart. A jaw puller consists of two or three arms connected by a center nut that is rotated to increase or decrease the size of the jaw opening. Jaw pullers are a great alternative to other separation methods, such as chisels and hammers, as they provide more control and require less effort. Jaw pullers are available in a variety of sizes and styles.

Bearing pullers are an invaluable tool in any toolbox. A bearing puller is a tool that removes bearing components from a machine or vehicle. Bearing pullers typically consist of a claw, threaded shaft, and handle. Bearing pullers are designed to remove bearings safely with minimal effort and damage to the bearing or the surrounding components. 

When using a mechanical puller, it is essential to ensure that it is centered over the component and firmly attached. The puller is usually secured by attaching it to the part with bolts or fasteners. In addition, it is crucial to take appropriate safety precautions, such as wearing safety glasses and gloves and following the manufacturer’s instructions.
