Spherical Washers

Spherical washers are a type of hardware component that serves a specific purpose in mechanical assemblies. These washers are designed with a curved or spherical surface, allowing them to accommodate angular misalignments and variations in the mating surfaces of components. The primary function of spherical washers is to provide a flexible connection between parts, compensating for deviations in alignment and promoting a more even distribution of loads. This category of washers is commonly used in applications where there is a need for dynamic movement, flexibility, or adjustment, such as in machinery, automotive systems, and other mechanical structures. The unique design of spherical washers contributes to improved performance, reduced stress concentrations, and enhanced overall stability in assemblies where they are employed.
