Clipped Washers from Boker’s, Inc., Are Key to Limited Space Applications
Design engineers who have limited space and need to control axial motion within their applications can turn to clipped washers from Boker’s, Inc.
The functionality of the clipped washers come from providing a flat bearing surface within assemblies. They are generally used under the head of a bolt and/or a nut to disperse loads as well as to prevent the washer from turning in the application. They are mounted with the flat edge of the washer facing a flat surface or recessed hole to prevent rotation.
Custom Lock and Tab Washers from Boker’s Offer Secure Fastening
Tabs may be bent or engage into keyways or slots in connected surfaces to provide a positive locking surface. In some applications, they are deployed along with a flat washer in order to distribute the load evenly without deforming the assembly that the fastener is secured to.
