SAE WasherLike everything else, washers have industrial accepted standards. These specifications help ensure that parts are high quality and interchangeable between manufacturers. To create a universally accepted standard, the manufacturing industry needs one central organization that everyone can agree on.

That’s where SAE comes in. It is an organization responsible for many of these standards, including those that govern washers. But what is it, and what does SAE stand for? Keep reading to find out.

What Does SAE Stand For?

The abbreviation SAE stands for Society of Automotive Engineers International. The organization started in 1905 by a group of engineers from several automobile manufacturers.

They wanted to standardize a burgeoning automotive industry and share technical information. It was a pivotal moment that helped pave the way for the modern automotive industry as we know it today. It primarily measured cars made in the USA.

SAE International is now a global association of engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive, and commercial vehicle industries. They are responsible for creating voluntary technical standards for designing, manufacturing, testing, and repairing vehicles.

The standards they create cover various vehicle-related topics, including fasteners and washers.
