Abstract

The experimental setup was mounted, that allows monitoring and analyzing the vibratory connection process of a shaft and the bushing, when they are joined with interference. While changing the parameters of oscillations, the shaft and bushing connection time may be significantly reduced. Increasing the amplitude and frequency of vibrations also allows bigger penetration of the shaft into the bushing. The increase of pressing force allows reliable shaft connection in a wider frequency and amplitude range. It also helps to shorten the insertion time under constant parameters of vibrations.
