It’s no secret that the aerospace (aviation, space, and defense) industries are subject to a plethora of regulations…and understandably so. These exacting requirements are imposed by OEMs, public and private sector bodies, both domestic and international, to ensure safety and reliability are achieved. They also serve as a common yardstick by which the supply-chain can be quickly measured.
At first blush, you might not think that dowel pins have a place in the medical industry, let alone a critical one…but you’d be wrong. In fact, dowel pins have a long history in medical applications, particularly in orthopedics (humans and animals) and medical/surgical equipment, worldwide.
The Coronavirus has forever changed the lives of the entire world. Not only are people having to stay home, but many businesses have also shut down. Here in Connecticut, we’re also dealing with a higher infection rate, so a specific focus on slowing the spread has made these mandates even more necessary.
Today, dowel pins are most often used to either join different machine components together or to retain alignment. If you’re in the process of selecting the right dowel pin for your application, then it’s helpful to know the different types of pins and their “fits.”
All workplaces have their pain points. In manufacturing, delivering high-quality output and keeping costs controlled are just some of the challenges the industry faces. When it comes to aerospace, an even greater focus is placed on ensuring quality and compliance never slip through the cracks.
