Interference fits are a commonly used mechanical attachment mechanism. They represent a flexible and cost effective method for joining components having cylindrical geometry. An interference fit is constructed when a bush is shrunk and/or pressed onto a shaft with an interfering radial dimension. The strength of the interference fit assembly depends on the shaft and bush dimensions, and must be sufficient to withstand the force or torque reached during normal service.
