Strongback pullers, alternatively referred to as hydraulic pullers, serve a vital function in efficiently removing shaft-fitted components like bearings or couplings. By harnessing controlled hydraulic force, they excel in swiftly separating parts, surpassing manual techniques. While an array of off-the-shelf strongback puller design models is accessible, there are instances where bespoke designs become imperative. This is particularly true in situations where confined spaces or elevated capacity demands surpass the offerings in the commercial market. Therefore, a custom-designed strongback puller may be indispensable.
In a specific instance, a client faced the challenge of extracting a fan coupling from a shaft during a scheduled shutdown. Their preference was to employ a hydraulic jacking cylinder readily available in the market with a strongback puller design. The client presented a strongback puller design concept, which we subsequently translated into a 3D model. Through the application of FEA analysis and the production of comprehensive fabrication drawings, we engineered a customized and highly efficient solution tailored to their exact requirements.

We used the 3d model to perform a stress analysis and create fabrication drawings. For more information on FEA visit https://blog.spatial.com/finite-element-modeling
We then used the model to create the fabrication drawings for the strongback puller.
