We carry a large selection of washers, spacers, and bushings for use with threaded fasteners. Washers are thin metal disks designed to distribute load, reduce vibration, and prevent damage to the object being fastened. Frequently used with bolts and nuts, our washers are available in smooth, beveled, split, serrated, and toothed styles. We also have spring washers that are designed to increase tension and absorb shock. Spacers and standoffs are hollow tubes used to separate two parts of an assembly. Spacers are unthreaded so a bolt or screw can pass completely through, whereas standoffs are threaded so components can be mounted on both ends. Our machinery bushings create precise gaps between shafts, pulleys, and gears to prevent damage caused by vibration and dynamic loads. We also carry retaining rings to keep components aligned properly. They are typically found in applications such as valves, solenoids, pumps, and pressure regulators.
Bushings & Sleeves
Bushings are used as spacers between pulleys and gears to prevent damage caused by vibration and dynamic loads. The durable bushing material is corrosion resistant.
Retaining & Fixing Rings
Retainer Rings are installed into pre-manufactured grooves on axles to act as a shoulder and retain a specified component or assembly. These retainers are designed with a lip for easy assembly and dismantling.C-Clip Retainer Rings can be used on axles with or without pre-manufactured grooves as an ideal solution to shoulder and retain a specified component or assembly. These C-Clips have a durable and bright zinc finish.E-Clip Retainer Rings slide into a groove on a shaft to shoulder, align, and retain a specific component or assembly. E-Clips are available in a wide range of sizes and variety of materials to best suit your application.
Spacers & Vibration Mount Standoffs
Unthreaded Spacers act as a buffer to absorb vibrations and reduce noise. These spacers are ideal for use in electronic appliances and applications where movement in stationary machinery is unavoidable.
C-Washers can be used to distribute the load of a fastener and help prevent damage to the object being fastened.Dished washers are similar to spherical washers, but instead are designed for elongated holes. They are punched, gauged and tempered.Ideal for applications where there is an uneven surface. Offered as pairs or individual male and female pieces.Ball Head Position Adjusters allow exact positioning when assembling sloping bases up to approximately four degrees angle of inclination. A second ball head position adjuster is recommended as a base in sloped positions. They are one-piece constructed.Bonded WashersMetal flat washers are available in mild or stainless steel. They provide full insulation, cushioning and spacing.Designed for applications involving low loads and require high deflection. Available in plain, metal, or zinc plated finishes.Commonly used as a take up spring for a wide range of load bearing applications. Provide greater load bearing capacity than single wave washers with some loss in deflection capability.Snubbing Washers are used with bonded mounts to provide multi-directional vibration isolation, shock attenuation, and noise reduction. When used together, these fail safe mounts and washers are easy to install and provide consistent performance."
