Boker’s (Minneapolis, MN) offers a wide variety of custom C-washers to its customers. C-washers obtain their name for being in the shape of a “C,” as they have a slot cut from the center to the perimeter allowing the washer to be removed, replaced or inserted without completely removing the fasteners. 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 quickly inserted, repositioned or removed without having to disconnect the fastener, which increases productivity. Specifically:
- 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 C-washers are custom produced in short, medium and long runs with fast delivery, minimal tool cost and 3D prototypes available.
