Boker’s, a manufacturer of precision metal stampings, washers, spacers and shims, 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.
“Boker’s C-washers are customizable and manufactured to the exact specifications needed,” said Pete Flodquist, Sales Manager at Boker’s. “With almost a century of experience, Boker’s has developed the most efficient and effective methods for producing complex custom products from progressive dies or single-stage tooling.”
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.
