Dowel Pins are designed for use as highly precise locating and positioning devices. These components are generally inserted into reamed holes and used as reference points for other parts in an assembly. The use of Dowel Pins can significantly decrease misalignment of components. Dowel Pins are machined to very tight tolerances, and are often used to provide precise alignment in a wide variety of engineering applications.
Dowel Pins are manufactured to be very slightly oversized, which allows them to be press fit into a desired hole. Dowel Pins installed by press fit are less likely to be affected by vibrations.
