Sponsored by SPIROL

Austenitic stainless steel Spring Pins are manufactured from grade SAE 302/304. Austenitic stainless steel is often selected for corrosion resistance or cost reduction. While this material possesses the spring characteristics required for proper insertion, retention, and performance, it introduces potential issues that must be considered in design. This White Paper explains how Coiled Pin offers many advantages when compared to Slotted Pins and some are most evident in austenitic stainless steel.
