Commonly used to apply a predetermined force on adjacent members in an assembly, Spring Washers can be used to dampen vibrations, eliminate side or end play, control end pressure, keep fasteners secure, accommodate thermal or pressure expansion and contractions, apply drag or resistance to turning, and many other compression spring applications. The selection of a particular type of Spring Washer depends on the application in terms of space available, deflection, and load characteristics required. Consequently, these washers are fabricated to meet close load, deflection, and size tolerances. Contact Weichhart Stamping Company for your Spring Washer needs.
