Their nickel and molybdenum content helps resist pitting when used in petrochemical-industry settings or when submerged in seawater. &nbsp;The pins come in metric sizes with nominal diameters ranging from 2 to 6 mm and lengths from 8 to 50 mm. In addition to uniform strength and flexibility after insertion, their shock-absorbing design dampens forces and vibration to prevent hole damage and prolong assembly life.<br /> </p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/stainless-steel-spring-pins-withstand-corrosive-environments" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/stainless-steel-spring-pins-withstand-corrosive-environments#comments Fasteners Tue, 14 Apr 2015 18:29:00 +0000 48061 at http://machinedesign.com What’s the Difference Between Resistance-Welded Fasteners and Arc-Welded Studs? http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/what-s-difference-between-resistance-welded-fasteners-and-arc-welded-studs <div class="node-body article-body">Welding is often used to permanently fasten two pieces of metal together.
