Title:
TOLERANCE RING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/063752
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An assembly including an outer member (30); an inner member (28); and a tolerance ring (2) disposed between the inner member (28) and the outer member (30), wherein the tolerance ring (2) is a split ring comprising opposing edges (110, 112). The edges (110, 112) are engaged with one of the inner member (28) or the outer member (30) so as to prevent or restrict movement between the tolerance ring (2) and the inner member (28) or the outer member (30). In another emodiment the tolerance ring is deformed as installed between the inner member and the outer member and forms at least one buckled region in the tolerance ring due to an interference fit between the inner member and the outer member, where in an uninstalled state, the buckled region is absent.
