This tool calculates the required interference for a secure press fit between parts.

## How to Use the Press Fit Calculator

To use the press fit calculator, fill in the following fields:

**Hole Diameter:**Enter the diameter of the hole in millimeters.**Shaft Diameter:**Enter the diameter of the shaft in millimeters.**Material Strength:**Enter the material strength in megapascals (MPa).**Interference:**Enter the interference fit in millimeters.**Coefficient of Friction:**Enter the coefficient of friction (default is 0.15).

Once all the fields are filled out, click the “Calculate” button. The result will be displayed in Newtons (N).

## How It Calculates

The press fit force is calculated using the formula:

**Press Fit Force = π * Hole Diameter * Interference * Material Strength * Coefficient of Friction**

This calculation takes into account the hole diameter, shaft diameter, material strength, interference fit, and coefficient of friction to determine the necessary force for a press fit.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes a uniform material and does not account for variations in material or temperature changes. Always consult with a professional engineer for critical applications.This tool is intended for preliminary estimates and educational purposes. Adjustments for specific engineering use cases may be required.
