With the continual miniaturization of technology, curved washers (curve washers) have a very important role. Curved washers can be designed and used in many devices where tight space constraints don’t permit the use of conventional wire springs. Of all the spring washer types, curve washers offer the highest amount of deflection. Another advantage is that they can be used to take up “slack” in many designs where a constant pressure is required.
Regardless of the industry, curved washers are always in high demand. They can be found in almost anything from simple, old machinery to complex medical devices to satellites. Peninsula Spring custom manufactures spring washers for a wide variety of customers in the computer, medical, aerospace and defense industries.
