How to Properly Pin a Shaft and Hub Assembly
This informative White Paper provides essential design guidelines to achieve the maximum strength of a pinned system and prevent damage to the assembly. Design guidelines are provided for both 1) the shaft and hub, and 2) the pin.
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.
