Abstract

The staking tool provides the capability of consistent staking of bearing trolleys and linear motor pistons. It eliminates the previous manual staking method and provides for improved operator safety. The tool consists of a one and one-half ton air press that is actuated by a manual (palm buttons) air valve, a slide with a nest (base) plate and assembly attached, a trolley stake holder assembly and a piston stake holder assembly, and a stop block, all located as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3. In the staking of bearing trolleys, the trolley (long or short) is located in the nest between pins 18 on base plate 1 and is pushed against spring-loaded locating slide block 6 until it drops down against stop plate 3 for a short trolley or stop plate 2 for a long trolley, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.

Staking Tool

The staking tool provides the capability of consistent staking of bearing trolleys and linear motor pistons. It eliminates the previous manual staking method and provides for improved operator safety. The tool consists of a one and one-half ton air press that is actuated by a manual (palm buttons) air valve, a slide with a nest (base) plate and assembly attached, a trolley stake holder assembly and a piston stake holder assembly, and a stop block, all located as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3. In the staking of bearing trolleys, the trolley (long or short) is located in the nest between pins 18 on base plate 1 and is pushed against spring-loaded locating slide block 6 until it drops down against stop plate 3 for a short trolley or stop plate 2 for a long trolley, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. When a long trolley is to be staked, stop plate 3 will swing out of the way. Two bearings are then placed into the slots in the end of the trolley closest to the air cylinder, and the nest base plate 1, which is fixed to the slide 13 which in turn is attached to the base of the air press 14, is pushed into staking position against the stop screw assembly 12. The air press is then actuated by pressing the two palm buttons on an air valve (not shown). The stake holder 9 is advanced by the air cylinder, and the slide locator 10 makes initial contact with the outside bearing and pushes it with the trolley against spring-loaded locating slide block 6, thus perfectly centering the trolley with the stake holder 9. As the downward motion of...
