External Threaded Taper Pin

Categories: ,


External threaded taper pins ISO 8737 / EN 28 737 / IS 3524 (Part 2) / DIN 7977 are specialized fasteners used in various industries to align and secure two or more components together, providing stability and preventing relative movement.


External threaded taper pins ISO 8737 / EN 28 737 / IS 3524 (Part 2) / DIN 7977 are typically made from materials such as carbon steel, stainless steel, or other alloys. They consist of a cylindrical body with external threads at one end running along its length. The pin gradually tapers towards one end, forming a conical shape. The tapered end usually features a chamfer or bevel to facilitate easier insertion into a corresponding tapered hole.

Design and Function:

The design of external threaded taper pins allows them to be inserted into a tapered hole, creating a tight and secure fit. The taper ensures that the pin wedges tightly into the hole, preventing any unwanted movement or rotation.

Installation and Removal:

To install an external threaded taper pin, the smaller diameter tapered end is inserted into the corresponding tapered hole. The external threads provide the means to extract the pins from blind holes where the assembly does not allow the feasibility to extract or knock the pin out from the other end. The threads are typically tapped or machine-cut with precision. The thread type and pitch can and mentioned in the standards ISO 8737 / EN 28 737 / IS 3524 (Part 2) / DIN 7977. In some cases, a specialized tool such as a pin wrench or a pair of pliers may be required to facilitate the removal process.


External threaded taper pins find applications in a wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, machinery, and assemblies like dies, jigs, and fixtures. Some common uses include:

Taper Pins find applications such as coupling hubs, gearboxes, and pulleys, suspension systems, steering mechanisms, and linkages, to secure components such as arbors, chucks, and cutting tools.

Advantages: Taper pins can be reused multiple times, reducing the need for frequent replacements and lowering overall costs.DIN EN 28737-Replace DIN 7977:06.56,03,61,02,77 -Unhardened taper pins with external  thread (ISO 8737:1986)-DIN-China Fastener Info
