Danielson, CT – Due to market demand, SPIROL has expanded their GD100 Ground Hollow Dowel product line by adding 6mm to the diameter range.  The GD100 is a revolutionary product as it was designed to be a direct replacement for the Ground Solid Dowel per ISO 8734; yet it is 50% lighter and significantly less expensive.

Features and Benefits of the Ground Hollow Dowels include:

• Precision ground outside diameters maintain critical alignment within 20μm.

• A 1.6μm surface finish and well-defined chamfers prevent shaving or scraping during installation.

• The roll-formed design yields substantial cost savings over Solid Dowels.

• The hollow feature offers weight savings over Solid Dowels and clearance for bolts, fluids, or gases.

In addition to Ground Hollow Dowels, SPIROL offers several other products that are routinely used for alignment: Coiled Pins, Solid Pins, Slotted Pins, Dowel Bushings and Spring Dowels.  With so many options for aligning components, the challenge is for Design Engineers to choose the best solution at the lowest cost.  Here is a White Paper that can help you Choose the Most Cost Effective Alignment Dowel.
