Task

Create a manual press for plastic bearings assembly in a difficult access area.

Solution

Hand-held lightweight tool designed for cordless ratchet or electric screw drivers. Pressing force was specified by our customer. Ergonomics and ensuring reliability were the main challenge. Intensive testing in our workshop and multiple iteration steps yielded the optimal material pairing, heat treatment, and geometry. In this project our role was subcontractor responsible for design, testing, and manufacturing.
