Press fit guide posts are manufactured from high quality hardened steel and finish ground for a high precision finish and ideally suited for running with steel, bronze or self-lubricating bushings. The precision series has a hard chrome finish providing an exceptionally smooth, hard wearing surface thus reducing friction between the post and bearing. Utilizing the precision microme guide posts will greatly improve the accuracy and working life of die sets as well as provide additional corrosion resistance.
Demountable posts are tap fit and held in place with toe clamps and screws. They can be removed and assembled multiple times without damaging or distorting the mounting holes in the die set thus simplifying die building and maintenance. Demountable posts are also used to replace press fit posts when the press fit hole has been damaged and the straight pin no longer fits securely in the hole.
