Can someone provide a reference for the diametrical interference for a press fit steel pin into aluminum? I need to press a .125" diameter pin into an aluminum extrusion roughly 1/4". All references have an interference of no more than .001 between the hole & pin, but I believe that those values are for materials such as steel into steel.
I want to use standard drill sizes if possible, but the range between sizes is not that small. I was able to press this pin into a hole with .005" interference.

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
