Boker's (Minneapolis, MN) has announced that it has expanded its capabilities for dome washer applications. Dome washers have a very high load capacity with a small overall deflection and 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.
There are many industries that have demand for dome washers such as appliance, automotive, agricultural, electronics, mining, electrical, construction and medical. To expedite your dome washer order and shorten delivery time, Boker’s has immediate access to 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.
