BushMAX™ | Tooling in the Aircraft and Aerospace Industries

BushMAX™ Installs Bushings Using Proven Coldwork Expansion Technology

Bushmax Process

BushMax™ simultaneously coldworks the material around the hole, and provides a high interference fit

BushMax offers several advantages:

  • Improved Fatigue Life

Fatigue life superior to press or shrink fit installations

  • One-Sided Operation

Process accomplished within seconds

  • Corrosion Resistance

Protective coatings are not damaged during installation

  • High Torque and Pushout Resistance

Greater resistance to rotation and pushout compared to conventional installation methods

  • Installation is Safer and Quicker

Cryogenic fluid not required

BushMax can be used for most bushing installations.

Bushings are available in a number of materials and configurations:


Bushing inside diameter : 10 mm→100 mm
