Press fitting has been used for centuries. Early examples are wagon wheels having wood rims and a metal band around it to hold it all together.
This morphed into use on rail transportation where it is far easier to replace the small band of steel that rides on the rail rather than the entire wheel assembly.
Today, press fitting is used in a wide variety of ways from gears and pulleys on shafts to bearings pressed in bores.
