THE ELASTIC PIN: A STRONG FASTENING ELEMENT, STRESSED IN SHEAR
An elastic pin, or clamping pin, is a fastening element composed of a metal cylinder split lengthwise. Very practical and resistant, the elastic pins for professionals developed by Würth are available in multiple formats.
A PARTICULARLY FLEXIBLE METAL CYLINDER SPLIT LENGTHWISE
A clamping/elastic pin is a connection element, generally made of steel, intended to be inserted within other elements to form a rigid yet removable assembly. It can be used to immobilize one part in relation to another, constitute an axis or even be used as a security component. Among the different types of existing pins, the elastic pin (also known as the “Mecanindus” pin) has the distinction of being:
• cold-rolled steel to feature a longitudinal slot
• positioned in its housing despite constraints imposed on it, by virtue of its structural elasticity.
ROBUST AND PRACTICAL PINS, IDEAL FOR YOUR ASSEMBLY WORK
Elastic pins, which are used in the same way as fluted pins and sleeves for bolts, allow you to perform a good part of your fixing operations. With a raw coating and conforming to the RoHS directive (which aims to limit the use of dangerous substances), Würth elastic pins are generally distinguished by their:
• robustness, being designed to withstand high shear stresses
• practicality, particularly their conical tip which makes it easier to introduce them into their housing, or even the possibility of removing them with ease, without damaging the mounting elements.
STEEL, NOMINAL DIAMETER, LENGTH… FIND THE ELASTIC PIN THAT SUITS YOU
Looking to identify the elastic pin that will best suit your current professional activities? Please note that the different models created and produced by Würth are distinguished by their composition (spring steel, A2 stainless steel, etc.), and that the nominal diameter of your spring pin must correspond, with a certain tolerance, to the diameter of the drilling hole intended to accommodate it. Each of our models of elastic pins is available in several sizes. Choose:
• the nominal diameter (2 mm, 2.5 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm...)
• and the length (10 mm, 16 mm, 20 mm, 24 mm, 30 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm…) that best suit your needs.
