C-Shaped Washers are perfect for use with existing components. C-Shaped washers can be slid into position, eliminating the need to completely disassemble components for use.
As the name suggests, C-shape washers are cut in the shape of a “C,” and the cutout is from the center to the perimeter allowing for easy removal. They feature a slot that’s large enough to accommodate a screw or bolt. Their design allows for easy insertion, removal, and replacement without the need to remove the entire fastener.
C-shaped washers are as effective as any other washer at evenly distributing the load. But their shape boosts productivity by allowing faster installation and ease of use. Since they can be quickly removed and replaced in a partially complete assembly, they are commonly used in applications where bolts need to be frequently adjusted or removed.
At Minneapolis Washer and Stamping, we manufacture C-shaped washers using various materials. Our in-house capabilities and vast supplier relationships allow us to create C-shape washers from different metals and alloys. Some of the most common materials include:
