Heat treated spring steel – A washer is a small disk or ring that is used in machinery as a buffer or a spacer. Spring washers are designed to provide a compensating spring force to absorb shock or vibrations within the machine it has been fitted into. Spring steel washers are important components in a device as they can help reduce friction and space between two separate parts; without the washer, the parts could rub and corrode the machine, jeopardising its functionality.
