Solving common issues in the composite moulding process.

One common issue we identified for customers was that of removing dowel pins, without damaging the workpiece or creating high volumes of waste, during the composite mould process. Boneham offers a variety of dowel pins that tackle this problem.

Boneham Extractable Stepped Dowel Pin in Stainless Steel

Extractable Stepped Dowel Pins

Boneham Extractable Stepped Dowels (ESD’s) feature a larger head to prevent resin from forming around the dowel. The head is tapped, and the smaller diameter of the dowel is polished to increase the ease of removal.

ESD's can be easily removed using Boneham dowel pin extractor kits.

These dowel pins have exceptional release properties and wide operating temperatures (-250°C to 285°C). Alternatively, customers may prefer an easily destroyable dowel pin that removes the need for removal.

Boneham Co-polymer Performance Dowel Pin

Our Co-polymer higher integrity dowels are plastic dowels offering superior integrity and performance. They have improved dimensional stability, a wide temperature range (-40°C to 140°C) and can, easily and efficiently, be drilled out if they become locked by resin run.
