If you’re trying to balance all the requirements of reducing space and improving efficiency, cost and performance, Rencol says its tolerance rings can help. As an example, Rencol cites automotive electric ABS motor supplier United Technologies (UT). Rather than using a spherical bushing and retaining clip, UT incorporated a metal sleeve bearing mounted by a tolerance ring. This approach reduced the motor length by 6mm.
