Pivot Pins

Alcon Post #6

Tool Highlight
"Dry" 1.75 x 6.13” Pin
"Wet" Pin

Alcon manufactures lots of pivot pins for earth moving equipment and heavy machinery. These pins are typically used in coupler and machine joints. Pins require high tensile strength alloy steel and can be induction hardened to improve wear resistance. We produce what are referred to as "wet" and "dry" pins, per customer request. "Dry" pins are lubricated through zerk fittings attached to the coupler or machine arm, whereas "wet" pins have a deep hole drilled along the center axis with a small cross hole located midway along the length. The zerk fitting on wet pins is installed in one end of each pin.

Pins are just one of many products that Alcon regularly produces. Visit our website to learn more and contact us today!
