Risers, Pins, Columns

Similar to parallel risers, steel pins and columns are precision ground to a specific height for controlling the accuracy of the shut height of a press.  Whereas, the risers are squared or T-shaped and set at or near the sides of the press assembly to support a plate or a part, steel pins are set nearer to the middle of the plates or the parts, acting much like supporting pillars or columns so that the part being worked upon doesn't buckle. Often times, these middling pins are ground to + 0.001 - 0.002" taller than the riser blocks so that when the press plunges downward, these steel columns bear the load, absorbing the minute shocks that occur.

Steel pins and columns are cut to size and  to shape, then precision ground to thickness, flat and parallel. Please, call us at  1-888-WE-GRIND when we can help you fulfill your requirements for CUSTOM STEEL PLATE.

Call us when you need steel columns, pins, or risers for any application.
