Coiled pins come in three “duties” letting designers choose the optimum combination of strength, flexibility, and diameter to accommodate different host materials and application requirements. Their shock-absorbing design dampens forces and vibration to prevent hole damage and prolong assembly life. The “Coiled Pin Design Guide” contains specifications, features, and benefits of these pins compared to other common press-fit pins, measuring techniques, and installation methods. Easy-to-read schematics and diagrams to support each key section. Design tips assist engineers on designing components with coiled pins to ensure the assembly functions as desired for the intended life of the assembly.
