First Fit Installation
Instruction for Straight Pin, Through Bolt
Follow the installation instructions to ensure that the Expander System is installed correctly and to prolong the pivot life.
Expander System pivot pin comes with a warranty against lug wear of 10 years / 10 000 hours in operation (whichever comes first) from the date of purchase.
This instruction is valid for lug holes with the following maximum tolerances:
- Hole tolerances: H9
- Lug hole inner surface roughness: Ra 3.2
- Misalignment of lugs: Outer lug distance/500
- There should be no bushings in the lug ears
If your lugs are not within these specifications, please consult your dealer or Expander System for installation recommendation.
1. Bolt 2. Washer 3. Sleeve 4. Axle (Pin) 5. Expander flat headed nut for internal hexagon
Grease the sleeves and axle, preferably graphite grease.
NOTE! If applicable: position greasing outlet 90 degrees to force direction to minimize stress concentration at outlet.
Install the Expander System loosely assembled. Position it in the bores and tighten the fastener. Hold the washer with a plier to prevent the axle from turning. Torque as specified.
Torques M12-M24 ± 10%, M30... +30/-0%
Grease the pivot (if applicable). Move the machine through full range of motion several times (typically 10) and recheck the torque. This is normally performed during the final inspection of the machine.
Ensure that there is a minimum distance of 0,5 mm (0.02”) between the washer and the lug. NOTE! For flange design, there should be a minimum distance of 6 mm for easy removal of the sleeve. ATTENTION! If the washer is in contact with the lug, contact your dealer or Expander System.
