What are Spring Steel Washers?
A washer is a small circular component common in mechanical devices as a spacer or a buffer. The spring steel washer is designed to provide a spring force, which absorbs the impact from shock or vibrations that take place inside the machinery. Spring steel washers are vital components within a mechanical device as they take the impact that would otherwise have to be absorbed by other parts of the machinery.
Helps Reduce Friction
Washers fill any unnecessary gaps between two different parts in the machine. So, these can often move around and cause friction damage if there is enough space to do so. By filling the gap with a washer, the component helps reduce friction and prevents corrosion damage that could potentially jeopardise the functionality of the device.
What are the Benefits of Spring Steel Washers?
A spring steel washer is a common choice of material for a washer due to the material’s strength and durability. A washer’s purpose is to absorb shock whilst filling gaps and therefore the material for such component needs to be sturdy with a tough resistance, while still being compact enough to fit inside a mechanical device.
