Washers

MORE INFO

Washers can be used for various purposes depending upon your requirement and are designed to keep the nuts and bolts from losing each other, locking the pair together! There are a number of washer designs, all with a specific purpose.

The basic purpose of using a flat washer is to reduce damage potential as you install equipment. The pressure distributes evenly to the surface, which has to be adjusted and secured by the nut and bolt. 2. In order to create a smooth surface so that the used nuts or bolts remain firm, a washer helps. Nuts and bolts actually do their job by keeping a shaft with the thread under tension. The preloading is very important for the joint and helps to reducing the pressure or tiredness of the bolt.

If you are working with a machine part, it can fluctuate and if deformation happens in between the nuts and bolts and the surface, the result can be a flattening of the thread or lengthening of the bolts, reducing tension. In the above situation, Lock washers come in handy. They apply a spring force against nuts and bolts, resulting in less stretching and will not allow much loosening, invaluable for the long-term. Another type of washer is a wavy washer. They are designed to apply spring force, whilst Belleville washers are shallow cone or dish-shaped and allow an exertion of a constant spring force on the joint. They are widely used in applications with high stress, with little slipping occurring due to their design.
