Press Fit / Oversized Dowel Pins
Press fit dowel pins, also called friction, interference, intolerance fit, or oversized dowel pins are slightly larger than the hole. Their purpose is to forcibly open holes wider, which is particularly useful when the hole is damaged. Unlike their standard counterparts, heat and/or high force is required to (dis)assemble them.

Manufactured Press Fit Dowel Pin CapabilitiesIn response to the many requests we receive for information about our capabilities or for a “line card” of parts we manufacture, we have prepared a list of items manufactured by Horberg in recent years. The list is not complete, but rather provides a good sense of our capabilities and range in manufacturing precision pins. We can work with most materials including “high-temp” alloys. Our maximum nominal diameter is .28125” on most materials, .3125” on free-machining alloys.
