Technifast non-standard dowel pin service 22 November 2016

Technifast Ltd is able to offer customers a specialist dowel pin service that includes dowels with longer lengths up to 120mm on diameters below 5mm, and the production of dowels up to 25.4mm, giving the option to add features such as flats and circlip grooves, or internal/external threads.

Not all standard dowel pins are appropriate for demanding applications or specialist projects, and it can be difficult to source the exact dowel for specific applications. Technifast recognises this and its custom–made dowels have already formed an integral part of diverse products from toy trains and surgical instruments, through to audio visual technology and marine leisure appliances.

“The ability to provide our customers with a custom–made dowel pin solution is one of the reasons we consider ourselves to be at the forefront of this specialist service,” comments Louis Speed, managing director at Technifast. “There is no ‘fit–all’ solution for fasteners, so it is important we are able to offer our customers a product tailored to their unique requirements. The continued investment in our machining capabilities is enabling us to produce a greater field of dowel pin solutions.”

Technifast is an ISO 9001 registered company, underpinning its reliability to monitor and manage quality across all its operations.
