Unlike costly, progressive tooling, Freeway’s compound tooling can hold and control flatness to a much tighter tolerance. This is accomplished by blanking the OD and ID at the same time.

Custom shaped washers

Before you pay for an expensive progressive die to produce your parts, let Freeway see if our more economical compound tooling can be designed and utilized for your custom shaped washers. Our tooling is not limited to three dimensional round washers; we stamp any shape imaginable with or without a hole, multiple holes or slight bends or forms.

Standard Washers

Freeway can make or mirror standard sized washers; however, tolerances are held much tighter to perfectly fit our customers’ applications. If a standard washer (USS, SAE, etc.) with open tolerances is needed, contact our standard washer specialist. Many standard sized washers are in stock for quick delivery.

Other washers

Our engineering staff is eager to help you with design ideas that will make your washer more economically manufacturable. Send us your rough drawing or engineered print (or we can create one for you) for your washer requirements.
