Types and main uses of stainless steel round pin

- Dec 21, 2018-

The stainless steel round pin is a kind of pin. It is made of stainless steel and mainly includes several types: ordinary cylindrical pin, internally threaded cylindrical pin, threaded cylindrical pin, perforated pin and elastic cylindrical pin.


stainless steel round pin are used in many applications and can be used for positioning or for connection. The product is mainly fixed in the pin hole by an interference fit. Cylindrical pins are usually used for positioning without load or with small loads, and the number is not less than two, distributed in the symmetrical direction of the overall structure of the connected parts. The farther apart, the better, the pin is in each connected piece. The length is about 1 to 2 times the small diameter.


So what is the difference between the shaft and the pin? Normally, the stainless steel round pin can also be used as a shaft, while a straight shaft can also be used as a cylindrical pin or even a centering pin. The shaft can be used to transmit torque, withstand bending moments and torque, and the cylindrical pin is used to position and withstand compressive and shear forces. In a sense (such as small equipment), the cylindrical pin can also be used as a shaft.
