Tube linchpins are plugs that are inserted into a tube and are turned over by the latching mechanism. In this way, a pipe lynch pin can be used as a fuse. Pipe linch pins are usually made of steel or stainless steel.
Many questions keep coming up what exactly are tubular linchpins and how are they used and constructed? We would like to clarify all these questions today in this amount. But we will not only answer these questions, but also questions about the use of tubular linchpins and the material that can be used as standard material today. Of course, again in this amount, the point of manufacturing tubular linchpins. We would like to start with how these are used in industry and also in many private areas. Basically, hinged pipe connectors are a safety element which can be quickly applied and secured by manual operation alone, i.e. without tools. Tube linchpins made of steel can be manufactured in such a way that they are so-called tube securing elements. Axial movements can be greatly reduced and limited and components are thus limited in an axial space to such an extent that the hinged pipe connector can release them by removing them. If, for example, pipes are manufactured with a component attached to them and the component can move axially back and forth on the pipe, the linch pin can limit this movement so that the component cannot fall down or be removed. For this purpose, a through hole must be drilled through the tube at the point defined for this purpose, which leads through both tubes. The tube lynch pin has a pin and this can now be inserted through the holes. The spring element is arranged in such a way that there is a wire clip which is placed half round around the tube when it is folded in. The pipe lynch pin is thus a pipe safety device and can be removed manually as required, so that the component can also be removed. The basic material from which the hinge pin is made is actually always blank steel, which is nickel-plated. The much better variant is that the stainless steel is used. This alloy can be V2A or also V4A. This variant is much more acid-resistant and resistant to alkalis and salt water.

The production of tubular linchpins
Surely you are also a person who has worked a lot with these pipe linchpins or still handles them. This is done by many people who want to create axial safety devices that can be attached quickly and manually using a tubular linchpin made of steel or stainless steel. So much for the application. Now, of course, we would also like to tell you how these plugs can be manufactured and how production can proceed. In order to be able to produce a pipe lynch pin made of steel or stainless steel, modern machines are required today, which are controlled by a CNC system. These machines are called lathes. With these machines the pins can be manufactured and also turned as shank pins. At the upper edge of the bolt, a cross hole must be drilled into it, which can then later accommodate the spring of the pipe lynch pin. These lathes always have a loader downstream, which can pick up the raw material. This way the machine can process the bolts in an automatic procedure and also produce them. Everything is processed by CNC control until all the bars are away from the loader. With this we would have already processed and produced the bolt for the pipe lynch pin. Now we come to the actual linch pin, which is the main feature that makes the tube linch pin the actual securing element. Of course, this also requires a machine that can bend the plugs or the spring and produce them exactly according to the specifications. These machines also have a CNC control and a processing center in the middle. Outside there is either a loader or a drum holder which can take the thinner raw wire material. When the raw material is then fed into the machine as spring wire on a reel, production can begin. Now the contours of the spring are produced by bending inside the machine. Small arms reach into the wire and bend it skilfully back and forth until the spring is finished. After this production program the spring is hardened in a hardening furnace. Only now is the spring effect given. Now the pin can be assembled with the spring wire and then results in the finished pipe lynch pin made of steel or stainless steel. These parts can now be stored in our warehouse and when you order, the connectors will be sent to you.
