Application

Tight Space Pilot Assemblies

Used to locate and eject heavy duty metal stock in metal stamping dies.

Innovation

Locates and Ejects All-in-One Assembly

Our fully integrated “off the shelf” Pilot Assemblies locate and eject metal stock. They’re designed and manufactured for robust and superior long-life production performance.

Design Features

  • A flat provides anti-rotation during fastener tightening and loosening
  • Machining of locating bore and flat allows for large common endmill (1/2″)
  • Lock washer provided

Choose a proper Pilot Diameter based on the Stock Thickness

Thickness labeled by red arrows of plate

Stock Thickness in relationship to the Pilot Diameter is important for 2 main reasons.

  1. To provide enough locating surface area, based on land length and diameter, between the pilot and the stock to effectively locate the stock.
  2. To provide a robust assembly that reduces the potential of the Pilot assembly being damaged during common miss-hits/misfeeds where the pilot is required to pierce and/or form the stock.
