Steel Pins- An Overview

A pin is a piece of equipment or instrument used for binding objects or materials together. Pins frequently have two components comprising a long body and sharp tip made of steel, or sometimes copper and brass, and a larger head often made of plastic. The sharpened body penetrates the material while the larger head provides a driving surface. Pins are formed with the help of a thin wire, sharpening the tip, and adding a head. Nails that are used for hammering objects are interrelated but are characteristically larger in their size. In the field of machinery and engineering, pins are normally used as pivots, hinges, shafts, jigs, and fixtures to locate or hold parts.

We at Usha Precision are known to be a one of the most competent companies for stainless steel dowel pins, rivets and also, as steel pin manufacturers. These steel pins are thin, hardened pins and can be driven into wood with a hammer and can be concealed. A different style of pin, fairly thicker in size and with rounded tip commonly called a stylus is used with gramophones. The vibration of this stylus transforms the physical waves of the groove in a record to the movement of a membrane. In this way the sound recorded can be heard. Precision turned parts and pins are used in engineering and machine design. In this, a pin is a machine element that secures the position of two or more parts of a machine relative to each other. A large variety of types has been known for a long time; the most commonly used are solid cylindrical pins, solid tapered pins, groove pins, slotted spring pins and spirally coiled spring pins.
