Detailed Description for Dowel Pin

A dowel is a solid cylindrical rod, usually made from wood, plastic, or metal. In its original manufactured form, a dowel is called a dowel rod. Dowel rods are often cut into short lengths called dowel pins. Dowels are employed in numerous, diverse applications including axles in toys, detents (e. g., in gymnastics grips), structural reinforcements in cabinet making, and supports for tiered wedding cakes. Other uses include.

 

Inserted into receiving holes, dowel pins hold together parts of an assembly with friction. They may also be used as location pins. These pins are common in the automotive and aerospace industries as well as in furniture making.

 

 

 

Dowel pins are industrial fasteners that are used to join two or more items together. They are short, cylindrical rods made of various materials including wood, metal and plastic. Dowel pins can be tapered, slotted, grooved, or otherwise altered to change its mechanical properties. They are commonly available in imperial or metric units.

     

 

Dowel Pin Operation

 

 

Dowel pins do not possess moving or actuated components. Dowel pins' mechanical capabilities stem from their high coefficient of friction, and any adhesive that may be applied when they are inserted into press-fit predrilled holes. They must be rigid while in use so they are capable of keeping the assembled parts aligned without further hardware fastening. For a firm fit, the hole should be exactly the same size or slightly smaller than the dowel's diameter. Dowel pins typically have working loads identified, with a breaking strength measured as when a double shear occurs.
