Custom D&C Washers From Boker’s
Boker’s, a manufacturer of precision metal stampings, washers, spacers and shims, is the leading stamping manufacturer of application specific D-washers.
D-washers get their name based on the “D” shape that is created by having a flat edge on either the OD, the ID or a combination of both. D-washers provide a flat bearing surface and are used under the head of a bolt and / or a nut to disperse loads as well as prevent the washer from turning in the application. They are generally mounted with the flat edge of the washer facing a flat surface or recessed hole.
Many applications require D-washers and they are used in many industries such as automotive, marine, aerospace, medical and countless more. “D-washers, also referred to as clipped washers, are generally used in applications where space limitations do not allow the use of a flat round washer, as well as when keeping an assembly stationary is required,” said Chuck Kersey, Assistant Sales Manager.
C-washers are designed to slide in and out of position on a bolt or shaft in a partially completed assembly. They can also be used as a retention device on a grooved shaft to keep components in place.
C-washers can be produced in over 2,000 commonly specified and difficult to find materials including low-carbon steel sheet, various spring steels, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper and nickel silver. Non-metallic materials include ABS, acetal, polyester, nylon, MD nylon, polycarbonate, fiber, polyethylene and various NEMA grade phenolics.
Boker’s maintains over 32,000 stock tools for flat round washers, spacers and shims without tool charges. You can choose from a wide variety of sizes, thicknesses and materials, including non-metallic to suit your application. With outside diameters of 0.080” to 5.140” and a wide variety of inside diameters, you have millions of flat and specialty washer possibilities.
