Latch pins suit larger plastic hinge applications

Spirol Industries Ltdvisit website


Spirol Industries is introducing a new range of Latch Pins for larger plastic hinge applications. Forming part of the company's extensive solid pin range, there are three sizes available covering lengths from 18-75mm in six different types manufactured from low-carbon steel or austenitic stainless steel.

The HP400 latch pins will appeal to any organisation where plastic assemblies form part of a larger component. They offer a number of benefits including a low insertion force, which means no risk of damage to the host component and no breakages during assembly.

Easy alignment of pin and hole is also ensured and, once in position, a positive secure seating is provided. A consistent hinge action aids product life by removing stresses. Using Spirol's pin installation and automatic assembly equipment also helps to ensure that latch pins provide the lowest installed pin cost.

Latch pins are also available in customised versions to suit specific manufacturing requirements and Spirol's design team can provide full application advice. Details of the latch pins are contained in literature that is available directly from the company.
