Load Washers are specialty disc springs used to improve the security of bolt connections. Disc springs support a plethora of dynamic processes in a skillful, safe and efficient way – often under extreme force and load conditions.
Linear or progressive load deflection characteristic.
Long and predictable service life with dynamic load.
Manufactured to DIN 16983 & DIN 16984
MATERIALS & SURFACES
per DIN EN 10132-4
Used exclusively for Serrated Safety Washers & Load Washers.
X22 CrMoV4 (1.8159)
per DIN EN 10269
X39 CrMo 17-1 (1.4122)
per DIN EN 10088-2
Chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel that is quenched and tempered.
*not considered corrosion-resistant steel grades*
Inconel (Nickel Alloy)
Virtually cobalt-free; often used in nuclear reactor technology.
Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steels
X5 CrNiMo 17-12-2 (1.4401)
per DIN EN 10151
Offers higher corrosion resistance and lower magnetism than X7 & X10. Material is hard to procure & is rarely used.
Ref: AISI 304
according to DIN EN 1654
Alloy consisting of copper and tin, maintaining its spring characteristics due to cold forming. The strength values and spring forces resulting from it are considerably lower than with standard material.
