We’ve explored interference fits and all their design limitations, but dowel pins have another application: slip fits. While interference fits create tight assembly tolerances, slip fits are just the opposite: They can easily give you a self-locating assembly, making manufacturing easier when needing close alignment. Want to know more? Check out our latest post on the Hardware Guide!
The post covers slip fit basics, and then addresses more complex topics, such as:
Slip fits are a great option when bolts are just too sloppy. Learn about the required tolerances and applications for slip fits from our latest Hardware Guide post.
