Know How a Motor Manufacturer Reduced Warranty Claims By 30%
Fill a form below

Current method & challenge

The OEM was using press fit as its current method, but was facing the following challenges due to gaps left between the bearing and shaft:

  • Loosening of the bearing within the assembly resulting in machine failure
  • During operations, assembly weakens to <30 Nm, well below the customer requirements

This resulted in a high number of warranty claims due to bearing loosening at customers end


LOCTITE 638 is dispensed manually on the shaft. The bearing is slipped onto the motor shaft & then heat cured at 60° C


  • Eliminated previous failures of bearing shaft, which reduced warranty and rework costs by 30%
  • Reliability increased by 2x. Heat curing of LOCTITE 648 increased the assembly strength to >60 Nm
  • High machining costs to maintain tolerance were eliminated
