Convex Washers

Convex washers, also known as curved washers or conical washers, belong to the category of mechanical fasteners and components. These washers are designed with a curved or convex shape, featuring an outwardly bowed surface. The primary purpose of convex washers is to provide a spring-like action, distributing load and maintaining tension in bolted joints. The curvature of the washer allows it to act as a cushion, absorbing vibrations and compensating for thermal expansion or contraction. Convex washers find application in various industries, including automotive, construction, and machinery, where they contribute to the stability and reliability of assemblies by preventing loosening and enhancing the overall performance of fastened connections.
