Precision Ground Dowel Pins

Precision Ground Dowel PinsPrecision Ground Dowel Pins are solid pins precision ground to narrow limits to permit accurate fitting. Precision dowels are traditionally used to hold parts together in a fixed alignment, relying on the tightness of fit to stay in place.

There are three factors that determine the size of hole needed; the tolerance on the dowel itself, the tightness of fit required (interference, transition or clearance) and the hardness of the components into which the dowel is fitted.
