Dome Washers Offers Many Options in Sizes, Materials.
Boker (Minneapolis, MN) s, a metal stamping manufacturer of precision metal stampings, washers, spacers and shims, has expanded capabilities for dome washer applications.
Dome washers have a very high load capacity with a small overall deflection. Often referred to as a semi-spherical washer, dome washers have the form of a truncated-sphere. These types of washers are commonly used in applications where assemblies need a part to eliminate side play, control rattle, maintain assembly tension, compensate for expansion or contraction in materials after assembly, or to absorb intermittent shock loads and provide a controlled reaction under dynamic loads. These units are economical, occupy little space, and generally weigh less than comparable wire springs. Boker's dome washers can be utilized in various applications, including electric motors, valve components, automatic door apparatuses, and drivetrain assemblies. The parts are offered over 2,000 commonly specified and hard to find materials including low carbon, cold rolled strip and sheet steel, SAE 1050, 1075 and 1095 spring steel, low alloy steel sheets, brass, copper, nickel silver, beryllium copper, stainless steel and aluminum. Dome washers can be heat treated and plated to meet your exact specifications. The company can manufacture custom stampings, washers, spacers, and shims with an outside diameter from 0.080 in. to 12 in. and material thicknesses from 0.005 in. to 0.134 in.
