As the U.K. distributor for ETP Transmission (Sweden) a customer came to ABSSAC with the a requirement for a standard ETP EXPRESS clamping bush with a 2inch bore. ABSSAC engineers consulted with ETP engineers after concerns that the radial loads, in combination with rotation bending moment and some torque, could pose a risk of fatigue failure. The solution was a Custom ETP EXPRESS 2 bush with a reduced pressure hydraulic fluid sleeve.  This simple solution would increase the fatigue life expectancy of the ETP EXPRESS.
