SPRING WASHER (DIN127)

SPRING WASHER (DIN127)
Spring washer is a ring split at one point and bent into a helical shape.

This causes the washer to exert a spring force between the fastener's head and the substrate, which maintains the washer hard against the substrate and the bolt thread hard against the nut or substrate thread, creating more friction and resistance to rotation.

Spring washers are a left hand helix and allow the thread to be tightened in a right hand direction only, i.e. a clockwise direction. When a left hand turning motion is applied, the raised edge bites into the underside of the bolt or nut and the part that it is bolted to, thus resisting turning. Therefore, spring washers are ineffective on left hand threads and hardened surfaces. Also, they are not to be used in conjunction with a flat washer under the spring washer, as this isolates the spring washer from biting into the component that will resist turning.

The benefit of spring lock washers lies in the trapezoidal shape of the washer. When compressed to loads near the proof strength of the bolt, it will twist and flatten. This reduces the spring rate of the bolted joint which allows it to maintain more force under the same vibration levels. This prevents loosening.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

  • DIN 127 B
  • JIS B 1251 - 2001
  • ANSI B18.21.1
  • DIN137 A
  • United States Military Standard NASM 35338

APPLICATIONS

Helical Lock Washer, Helical Spring Lock Washer, Split Lock Washer.

Helical spring lock washers are the most commonly used part to prevent assembly components from loosening. They apply greater bolt tension per unit of applied torque, and provide protection against loosening resulting from vibration and corrosion.
