TAPER PIN FEATURES


Taper pins are arguably one of the simplest pin designs available, and along with dowel pins, are the
oldest. Taper pins are turned from barstock to varying tolerances depending on the specification. This
production technique is slower than the heading and grinding process used to manufacture dowel
pins, and slower than rolling steel pins.

The number refers to the diameter of
the large end of imperial pins. To get the
diameter of the small end, multiply the ASME B18.8.2 specifies a taper of A 63 microfinish is standard
1/4 " per foo t (0.02 083" per inch) to allow smoo th inser tion
length by .02083 and subtract from the
decimal size of the large end. See “Diameter

i n se r t

Tapers are expressed in terms of rise over run. In other words, the
amount of taper is stated per linear units of measure. A 1/4" taper per
foot means that for every 12" in linear distance (run) the thickness of
the part (rise) decreases by .25" (1:48). Metric pins decrease by 1 mm
for every 50 mm (1:50).

QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE


Taper pins are a highly precise locating pin. The taper causes constant contact through the length of the
pin as well as the entire cross section creating exceptional holding power. It also allows for a repeatable
firm seat and exact location when reinserted after disassembly.
