Press Fit Dowel Pins

Press Fit Dowel Pins

A press fit is created by placing the dowel pin into a hole that is slightly smaller than the pin diameter. This difference in pin and hole diameter is known as the interference. The dowel pin is specially designed based on hole size, tolerance and ductility. A press fit is used where accuracy of location and close-tolerance alignment is of prime importance.
