Special Flat Metal Washers

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

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; our metal washer stamping can conform to just about any shape: with or without a hole, multiple holes or slight bends or forms.

Why Choose Freeway Corporation Stamped Washers?

We manufacture a wide variety of stamped washers including spring washers, star washers, conical washers, and everything in between. 

Why Do I Need a Metal Washer?

Metal washers are used to primarily distribute the load of a fastener over a greater surface area. Most stamped washers are disk-shaped, but we also can create custom washer designs for your applications. While we offer over 45 different machined washer types, there are three main types of metal washers used for components:

  • Washers are usually used for distributing loads or as spacers.
  • Spring washers are designed to prevent fasteners from loosening in high-vibration areas.
  • Stamped washers are meant to keep fasteners from unscrewing.

At Freeway Corporation, we can use our washer stamping machinery to provide you with these three main types and their various subcategories for more precise needs.
