Detent Shot Pin
E&E DETENT SHOT PINS
One method of complying with zero stored energy requirements for manually loaded fixtures is to use the E&E detent option on the vertical shot pins. The detent option is a passive low cost way to minimize the drifting effect of no air pressure. The detent option will hold a limited tooling weight or part load pressure and is NOT a safety device. The detent is useful for light weight parts with minimal load interference. The detent can be pushed through by the operator. The detent can be pushed through by heavy or poorly fitting parts.
Detents are for pins only where the NC blocks are separately supported. Detents are NOT for use with retracting NC blocks.
The detent option is only available with rigid coupler option
For applications outside the detent shot pin capabilities please see the “E&E locking shot pin”.
