SPIROL Introduces New BP100 Press-N-Lok™ Pin
SPIROL is pleased to announce the expansion of their Solid Pin Product Line to include the new Series BP100 Press-N-Lok™ Pin. The new Press-N-Lok™ Pin was designed to permanently retain two plastic components to each other. The pin has opposing raised barbs on each end that are angled backwards opposite the direction of insertion.

SPIROL is pleased to announce the expansion of their Solid Pin Product Line to include the new Series BP100 Press-N-Lok™ Pin. The new Press-N-Lok™ Pin was designed to permanently retain two plastic components to each other. The pin has opposing raised barbs on each end that are angled backwards opposite the direction of insertion. As the pin is being inserted, the plastic backfills into the area around the barbs resulting in maximum resistance to axial force providing a secure, tamper resistant assembly. The Press-N-Lok™ Pin is manufactured from lightweight, lead free, corrosion resistant aluminum. One major advantage of the Press-N-Lok™ Pin is that assembly time is quicker and it requires lower assembly equipment costs as compared to screws and adhesives.
The Press-N-Lok™ Pin is installed in two steps:
- Step 1: Press the pin into one half of the plastic housing.
- Step 2: Align the other half of the housing with the exposed end of the pin and press into place.
Complimentary Applications Engineering Support: SPIROL Engineers will review your application requirements and work with your design team to recommend the best solution at the lowest total assembly cost.

Which Austenitic Stainless Steel Spring Pin is Best for Dynamic Loading?
Although there are many advantages to using Spring Pins, it is important to understand the design features between Slotted and Coiled Spring Pins - particularly for critical applications and those subjected to dynamic loading. This White Paper details the specific design differences between both Slotted Spring Pins and Coiled Spring Pins and explains which Spring Pin is best for dynamic loading.
How to Calculate the Estimated Fatigue Life of a Disc Spring
Disc Springs are conically-shaped washers designed to be axially loaded. They can be used individually or assembled into stacks to achieve the desired force-deflection characteristic required for the application. Since deflection of a Disc Spring at a given load is predictable, it is possible to calculate force and stress levels within the Disc. This paper focuses on the use of Disc Springs and how to estimate fatigue life in dynamic situations.
The Difference Between Cold Headed and Machined Solid Pins
The objective of this paper is to educate designers about the differences between cold heading and machining so that they understand how to design a Solid Pin that optimizes performance and reduces total manufactured cost of the assembly.
