Custom Engineered Pins

A customized selection of materials, diameters and geometry

Custom solutions for all fastening requirements

Custom Engineered Pins are Vogelsang’s product line for applications where a truly custom solution is needed.

Your choice of non-threaded fasteners is not limited to generic low cost roll pins or the often-times cost prohibitive coil pins. Vogelsang has engineered a product to incorporate the features of a coiled spring pin into a much more cost effective Engineered- RollPin™ (ERP-Series™). Through sophisticated German tool design, pins are non-scarring to soft host materials, prevent interlocking for automatic feed systems, and are capable of sustaining dynamic loading.

The Engineered-RollPin™ provides features that enhance assembly: rounded chamfers with internal burr direction to prevent galling or scarring, slot design to prevent interlock for automatic feed, tight overall length tolerance, and circumference geometry for full radial tension to sustain dynamic loading. All of these design features increase quality production, allow automatic insertion and reduce cost.

The ERP-Series™ offers a selection of materials, diameters and geometry; and provide equal — or superior — quality to standard coil pin products with savings of 25-30%.

We’re so convinced that the ERP-Series™ products can provide significant cost savings that we invite you to speak with our engineers to style a completely custom experience for your existing applications.

The Vogelsang engineers responsible for developing the ERP-Series™ have over two decades of experience in engineered metal forming technology, and can create customized products for new programs, or cost reduction solutions for existing coiled pin applications.

Features & Advantages

custom engineered pins
  • Custom configurations can reduce weight
  • Can be made self locking and self adjusting
  • Can be made with wavy, straight or trapezoidal slots
  • Other options include flanges, bevels, half moon shape, protrusions, grooves, and dimples
  • Can be designed for double pinning
  • Can be ground
  • Can adjust the pin to fit specific hole sizes, with specific lengths and tolerances
  • Available in high carbon steel, 3-16 steel, 18-8 steel, 4-20 steel, aluminum, and nickel alloys


The technical innovations and applications for Engineered Pins are limitless. They are ideal for the assembly of two (or more) fixed or moving components, which can be made of varied materials.

Specific forms of slots prevent pins from tangling during automatic feeding processes on assembly lines, or during coating operations made on the pins themselves.

Custom Engineered Pins are frequently used across a wide variety of industries, including automotive, mechanical, aeronautical, building and construction, tooling, armaments, electrical and electrical home appliances, handling, railway, agricultural and more. They can be found in products ranging from high heeled shoes to wheel chairs, guns, plastic toys, respirators and snow blowers among many others.
