DOWEL PINS, GROOVED PINS & TAPER PINS
Precision dowel pins are traditionally used to hold two or more parts together in a fixed alignment relying on the tightness of fit to stay in place. Dowels are solid pins, usually precision ground to narrow limits to permit accurate fitting.
We hold stock of the majority of the dowels we offer or can manufacture dowel pins to a customer drawing or specification. We can supply and manufacture dowel pins in mild steel, brass, stainless steel 303 and stainless steel 316, as well as Hardened & Ground Steel.
Dowel pins are cylindrical rods of steel and can be plain, extractable, tapered or grooved.
Extractable dowel pins have a male or female thread for easy removal.
Grooved pins are supplied with parallel or tapered grooves to DIN and ISO standards in mild steel or stainless steel 303. We can supply with either half length or full length taper grooves, as well as a centre groove.
Our range of taper pins include plain taper pins to DIN 1B, male extractable taper pins to DIN 7977 and female extractable taper pins to DIN 7978.
We stock equivalent imperial dowel pins and taper pins to BS 1804 / BS 46. Unfortunately we are unable to provide imperial grooved pins, but may be able to offer an imperial equivalent if your application permits.
We also have the facilities to quote for custom made dowels and taper pins.
Our capabilities range from very small diameter dowels from 1mm, through to custom made dowels up to 32mm diameter.
As well as non-standard diameters, we can quote for non-standard taper angles, split taper pins and non-standard threads.
