Tensioning Washers

Compliant with DIN 6796, our tensioning washers are robustly dimensioned and designed for use in medium or high load screw joints.

The high spring force of our tensioning washers affords effective protection against relaxation and creep. Especially when joints are exposed to high stresses and movements resulting from thermal expansion or contraction. In such instances, tensioning washers should replace conventional lock washers.

You can stack tensioning washers in series or parallel. Series stacking increases the available deflection of the spring stack while parallel stacking increases the force — the desired installation is to get the washers as near to flat as possible.

FL = Free Length

F1 = Maximum Force

h min = min dimension after setting test acc to DIN 267-26

Min residual spring force = after load with the contact force and release through a travel of 20 μm

Contact force = forces for the setting test, acc to DIN267-26
