Spirol Introduces a New Pin for Its Standard Solid Pin Offering
The new Press-N-Lok Pin is designed to permanently retain two plastic components to each other. The pin has opposing raised barbs on each end that is angled backward 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. Assembly time is quicker and it requires lower assembly equipment costs as compared to screws and adhesives.
Given the prevalence of plastic housings in just about every industry today, the Press-N-LokTM Pin will be used in many different markets including automotive, agriculture, heavy equipment, medical, cosmetic, alternative and green technologies, and durable consumer products.
