Washers are essential components in various industries, including construction, automotive, and manufacturing, where they play a crucial role in ensuring secure and stable fastening connections. Available in different sizes, materials, and types to accommodate different applications and requirements.
A Belleville washer, also known as a coned-disc spring or Belleville spring washer, is a type of washer with a unique conical shape. When compressed, it exerts a spring force in the axial direction. These washers are commonly used in applications requiring high spring loads or limited space, such as in valves, pumps, and machinery. They provide excellent spring properties and can compensate for thermal expansion or contraction.
Disc Spring Washer
HSFG (High Strength Friction Grip) washers, also known as direct tension indicators (DTIs), are specialized washers used in conjunction with high-strength bolts in structural steelwork. They feature a unique design with protrusions or teeth on one side that grip the surface of the bolt and prevent rotation during tightening. HSFG washers help ensure proper bolt tensioning by providing a visual indication of the achieved tension. These washers play a critical role in maintaining the integrity and safety of steel structures, such as bridges, buildings, and infrastructure projects, where accurate bolt tensioning is essential.
Plain washers help prevent damage to the surface of the material being fastened and provide a more even distribution of pressure. They are essential components in various industries, including construction, automotive, and manufacturing, where they play a crucial role in ensuring secure and stable fastening connections.
A rib washer is a type of washer with raised ribs or ridges on its surface. These ribs provide additional grip and resistance against rotation when installed under a bolt or nut. Rib washers are commonly used in applications where vibration or movement might cause traditional flat washers to loosen. They help improve the stability and security of fastening connections, making them suitable for use in machinery, automotive, and construction industries.
Serrated Lock Washer (Internal & External)
Shims & Support Ring
Shims and support rings are thin, flat components used to fill small gaps or provide support between mating surfaces in mechanical assemblies. Shims are typically wedge-shaped and can be stacked to achieve precise alignment or adjustment, while support rings are flat and used to distribute loads or provide reinforcement. These components are commonly used in various industries, including manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace, to ensure proper alignment, spacing, and structural integrity in assemblies.
Spherical Washer (Conical Seat)
A spring washer, also known as a disc spring or Belleville washer, is a type of washer with a curved shape that acts as a spring when compressed. These washers are used to create a preload tension between the nut and the bolt, preventing loosening due to vibrations. They are commonly used in applications where maintaining tension and preventing fastener rotation are essential, such as in automotive, aerospace, and machinery industries.
A taper washer is a specialized washer with a tapered design, featuring a thicker side and a thinner side. These washers are used to create a wedging action when installed under a bolt or nut, allowing for proper alignment and tensioning in applications with angled or uneven surfaces. Taper washers are commonly used in construction, automotive, and machinery assemblies where precise alignment and secure fastening are required.
Wave Washer (Ball Bearings)
Wedge Lock Washer
A wedge lock washer is a specialized type of washer with angular surfaces on both sides. These washers are used to create a wedge effect when installed under a bolt or nut, generating tension and preventing loosening due to vibration or rotation. Wedge lock washers are commonly used in high-stress applications such as heavy machinery, automotive, and structural assemblies, where secure fastening and resistance to loosening are critical.
