Application

Insert Mounted Pilots

Used to locate metal stock in metal stamping dies.

Innovation

Similar but Superior

Our thorough evaluation of straight pilots in the market identified three areas of improvement; faster machining, more robust head thicknesses, and a simpler part number / call out structure. Our Headed Pilots deliver on these improvements and more while being off the shelf and available to ship same day.

Headed Pilot Design Features

  1. No head grinding required, our head thicknesses are ±.0005″ (5x tighter than other pilots).
  2. Robust head thicknesses, increase in size as diameter increases.
  3. Head radius allows for common tooling to machine the pocket, no sharp corners or making the pocket larger than necessary.
  4. The inside radius is cleared which eliminates the need to chamfer the hole in the bottom of the pocket.
  5. Relief angle added to transfer any mis-hit forces to the pad reducing the shock on the head of the pilot.
