Radial pin for shaft-hub connection

The easiest and oldest way joints. It is a joint with a shape contact. The pin serves primarily to ensure the mutual positioning of the two parts. They are cylindrical or conical. The pins are dimensioned under simplified assumptions without will and without the pressing effect. When designing a pin, the cross section of the pin in the shear area must be the nominal cross-section of the pin.
