KEYED GILL PINS
These are similar to gill pins with a round section and long taper, but
in addition these have a key/indentation at the head of the pin. The two
most common types of key on a keyed gill pin are "wedge" and "notch".
Keyed pins are used for combing/carding/drawing of the same fibres as
ordinary keyed gill pins. The key is simply another method of holding
the pin in the comb, faller bar or pin plate etc. Keyed pins are used in
plastic or nylon moulded combs, but the key also provides extra grip
when the pins are glued or soldered in position. The majority of keyed
gill pins are used in nylon inserts which are then glued into faller
As in the case of the other available pins, any size of keyed gill pins
is available with a variety of keys and several different taper shapes.
When ordering keyed pins, it is an imperative to state exactly what type
of key is required. In case of absence of exact knowledge, please send
us a sample. In the event of it being impossible to determine the type
of key required, Pinco India will supply pins with a 1/16" notch key.
