The benefits of the Posi Lock system
The Posi Lock system offers three main advantages over traditional pulling devices: safety, speed and strength. The patented steel cage enables automatic alignment, locking and opening of the jaws, simply by turning the T-handle. Tapered jaws offer tight clamping around the bearing for optimum gripping, as well as allowing for application in tighter spots. The shaping at the tip of the jaws also allows the Posi Lock puller to lock on to ball grooves and bearing races to offer full purchase on the pull.
Posi Lock pullers simplify removal and extend gear and bearing life, with a range starting with simple mechanical pullers that extends through to high tonnage hydraulic options, capable of delivering a staggering 200 tonnes of force. Alongside our individual pullers, we also supply Posi Lock puller sets, which include cylinders and manual pumps.
Things to consider when purchasing your Posi Lock Puller
What type of puller will I need?
The Posi-Lock bearing puller is designed to remove bearing sets from a rotating machine shaft and the Posi-Lock gear puller removes gears from their shafts.
What reach is needed?
The reach is measured by the distance between the bottom of the cage and the jaws, which must be equal or greater to the size of the part to be pulled.
What distance of spread is required?
The spread is determined by the width of the part being pulled and the distance should be greater than the width of the part.
What force will be needed?
A puller with the proper reach and spread should have enough capacity to remove the part. If in doubt, use a puller with a larger capacity than what may be needed.
