Non Ferrous Metal Washer
Heavy equipment and machines are essential for completing industrial functions on time and within budget. They make processing weighty or vast quantities of material easy while minimizing risks.
Without washers capable of bearing excessive loads, it’s likely construction, mining, power generation, and other industries would struggle to meet demand. Keep your heavy operating efficiently with industrial washers from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
Benefits of washers
A washer is a disk-shaped plate with a hole used to distribute loads from a threaded fastener, such as a screw or nut. Other uses include being spacers, springs, wear pads, load indicators, locking devices, or vibration reducers.
Large diameter washers for industrial equipment or heavy machinery have the same qualities as standard-size washers but on a much bigger scale. They are used to construct many types of heavy equipment.
- Crushing Equipment
- Earth Movers
- Front-End Loaders
- Mining Equipment
- Oil Tools
- Conveyor Systems
- Military Vehicles
- Power Blocks
