Dowel Pins are the most basic, solid cylindrical pins that are commonly used for accurately locating machine parts in a fixed position, while maintaining alignment. In simpler terms, they are used to hold machine parts in a fixed alignment, depending on the tightness of fit, to stay in position.
The ISO and DIN standard pins are manufactured to high tolerance specifications. The dowel holes are used by mechanical engineers, as a point of reference, to control positioning. The application of dowel pins requires clearance fit or reamed holes for press fit.
Available in Imperial or Metric sizes, Dowel Pins are measured in inches or mm. Bearing Shop UK provides a variety of diameter, length, and pack size options.
