An Interference fit is a fastening between two components which is achieved by friction after the parts are pushed together, rather than by any other means of fastening.

Examples[]

Typical examples of interference fits are the press fitting of shafts into bearings, or bearings into their housings, and the attachment of watertight connectors to cables.[]

Types of fit[]

The fit specifically refers to the relative sizes of the object and the aperture into which the object should be placed.

Formulae[]

Formulae exist to enable the specification of various strengths of fit, such as Loose Fit, Light Interference fit
