Installation Instructions

Series LP

Drilled hole

  • The drilled hole must be within the tolerances shown on the dimensional sheets.
  • The cone rate 1:12 must be kept as per specification sheet.
  • Holes must be round within 0.05 mm.
  • With hard materials the bore roughness should be from Rz = 10 - 30 µm. for best results.
  • Longitudinal rifles and spiral grooves should be avoided. These influence the sealing effectiveness.
  • The bore must be free of oil, grease and chips.





Setting procedure

  1. With the setting hole facing out, the LP plug is inserted in the cone bore. The top sleeve should not be above the surface of the base material.
  2. The LP plug can now be pressed in with the setting tool. Corresponding approximate values for stroke S are from the table below.
  3. Installed LP plug.

Note:

  • Use the proper size setting tool for the KOENIG Expander® according to the data sheet.
  • Through washing of the LP plugs before installation, higher setting force might occur.
Press
  • It is preferred to limit travel when using a press because insertion force is difficult to control.
  • Recommended setting speed is 5 mm/sec.
The KOENIG Expander® assuring an optimum orientation, it works perfectly with automatic processing.

Plug Removal

With KOENIG Expander® LP Series plug removal is possible. The plug can be drilled out with a high speed steel drill. Procedure:
  1. Drill out, in one process, to the next larger diameter, nominal diameter d4 according to the data sheet.
  2. Drill the taper hole with a reamer up to diameter d3 according to the data sheet.
  3. Clear chips, remnants of the sleeve, and oil and grease from the bore.
  4. Install a new KOENIG Expander®.
Note: After plug removal always install the next larger size plug
