Eyelet Introduction

Easy Selection We Offer

Selecting an eyelet of your choice from a long list of dimensions is always a time-consuming, if not tedious, undertaking. We address the issue in three ways:

Flanged eyelet guides are tabulated in ascending order of one critical
             dimension, The Hub Diameterm to facilitate your search.

              the usability of any eyelet that you select
The dimensional drawings are depicted under Eyelet Guide Flanged ( 1 ) to ( 4) in ascending order of the eyelet's hub diameter "D".

The links below lead to our Ascending Order lists, with the first column of each list showing the dimension either D, B or C, to make it easy for you to locate the desired eyelet guide.

In ascending order of the hub diameter D
In ascending ordor of the the bore diameter B
In ascending order of the length C


Hub Diameter Reduction Service Enhances the Usability

We offer a service to reduce the hub diameter "D" of our eyelet by up to 0.5 mm on the circumference, or a total reduction up to1.0 mm on diameter "D", provided sufficient stock is left to keep the minimum wall thickness at no thinner then 1.0 mm. The minimum order is 100 pieces each part number.

So does the Hub Grooving Service


While Grooved Eyelet Guides (see below) are available form stock, we also offer a hub grooving service for snap ring fitting onto the eyelet that you select. The minimum wall thickness of no thinner then 1.0 mm holds. Three groove widths are available, 1.1, 1.3 and 1.6 mm. The minimum order is 100 pieces each part number.


Variations of Eyelets

                 Grooved Eyelets                     Slotted Eyelets               Conductive Eyelets                

Eyelets with dedicated groove or slot at sintering are described in separate pages. While all eyelets made of Alumina are non-conductive, the ones made of Tungsten Carbide and, to a lesser extent, black Titania, are electrically conductive, and can be selected to dissipate the harmful static charge created in fiber processing, including the glass fiber.
