A stop pin is a pin that can restrain a sliding or rotating object by coming into contact with it.
Since the object is repeatedly contacted, hardness and abrasion resistance on the contact surface are required. Various types of pins are manufactured so they can be secured by press-fitting or screwing into the mounting hole. In the case of press-fitting, each mounting block must be replaced because of the difficulty of replacement. The contact point can be either on the head or on the side of the head, depending on the application.
Stop pins are used in a wide range of fields as mechanical components.
In the machining field, stop pins are sometimes used to signal the end of positioning of components such as molds and pedestals.
When the stop pins are used in combination with a stop bolt, the head of the stop pins contacts the tip of the aligned stop bolt, thereby stopping it at a predetermined point. The contact between the inner surface of the notch in the long hole machined in the rotating element and the side surface of stop pins is used to control torque fluctuations in the rotating element.
Since stop pins are designed to be in contact with each other, materials with high strength and durability are selected for the contact surfaces, and the shape of the stop pins are also considered.
The example specification uses S45C as the material, and the end face is quenched, further polished, and then treated with a trivalent chromate. S45C is an alloy containing 0.45% carbon in iron, and is a popular material used for machine parts, called "carbon steel for machine structural use". It is also suitable for quenching.
The shape is generally a bolt type, but there are also three-jawed types that use a spring material to provide not only a stopper but also a holding function, depending on the Uses of the product.
Other types of stop pins include those with spherical end faces, those with urethane or other resins, and those with stop pins that are press-fitted rather than screwed into place.
