Grooved Pins, or just Groove Pins, are solid non-threaded press-fit pins that have grooves running axially along their surface. Since the grooves are swaged, material is displaced, increasing the diameter of the pin. As the pin is forced into a hole, the grooves close and the pin locks in place. Grooved pins have good anti-vibration performance.
Grooved Pins Diameters
Grooved Pins are available on the FCH Network with Imperial/US diameters that range from #0 to 5 and with Metric diameters that range from M1.6 to M20. The length of Grooved Pins is usually measured from the point to the underside of the head.
Grooved Pins are available on the FCH Network in materials that range from Steel to Plastic
Grooved Pins Finishes
