Boker's Expands Manufacturing Capabilities for Dome Washers

test

Minneapolis, MN—July 25, 2017—Boker's, a metal stamping manufacturer of precision metal stampings, washers, spacers and shims, expands capabilities for dome washer applications.

Dome washers have a very high load capacity with a small overall deflection; often referred to as a semi-spherical washer, dome washers have the form of a truncated-sphere. Dome washers 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. Boker's dome washers can be utilized in a variety of applications, including: electronic motors, valve components, automatic door apparatus, and drivetrain assemblies.

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.

Boker's can manufacture custom stampings, washers, spacers and shims with an outside diameter from 0.080" to 12" and material thickness from 0.005 inches to 0.134 inches. Boker's is committed to delivering quality, precise custom dome washers for just about any application need.

BOKER'S ANNOUNCES FENDER WASHERS AVAILABLE IN A BROAD RANGE OF SIZES AND MATERIALS

Minneapolis, MN—August 24, 2010— Boker's, Inc. announces that the company's extensive washer selection includes fender washers, available in a wide variety of sizes and materials. Fender washers are offered with outside diameters ranging from 0.081 inches to 5.000 inches, plus numerous inside diameter and thickness options. With ready access to more than 2,000 commonly specified and difficult-to-find materials, Boker's delivers fender washers in materials including low-carbon sheet steel, various spring steels, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper and nickel silver. Non-metallic material options include ABS, acetal, polyester, nylon, nylon MD, polycarbonate, fiber, polyethylene and various NEMA grade laminates. These fender washer sizes are easily accessible by searching for specific outside or inside diameters at bokers.com/fender_washers.asp.

A fender washer, though similar in shape to a standard washer, differs in that the outside diameter is traditionally much larger in proportion to the center hole. With this design, a fender washer can be placed under the head of a bolt or nut to help distribute forces applied when tightening. Its oversized outside diameter also provides more bearing surface for the load of the fastener—distributing the load further on soft or thin materials. Fender washers are commonly used in automotive, sheet metal, plumbing and electrical applications.

Boker's complete offering of fender washers includes a selection of over 8,968 sizes and 2,000 metallic and non-metallic materials—all offered with no tooling charges. With quick turnarounds and millions of washer possibilities, Boker's offers washer solutions to suit the widest range of application needs.
