Wave Washers

Wave washers (or wave springs) are wavy metal washers designed to provide a compensating spring force and sustain a load or absorb shock. Wave washers are commonly called spring washers. Wave washers are disks of metal that are formed in an irregular shape. When the washer is loaded it deflects, acts like a spring, and provides a preload between two surfaces.

Important dimensions to consider when specifying the size of wave washers are:

  • Inside & Outside Diameter: The inside and outside diameter are the most important dimensions.

  • Thickness or Working Height: The thickness or working height refers to either the thickness of the washer material, or the working height (installed height) for the product.

  • Rated or Working Load: The rated or working load is the maximum or optimal working load for the product. Wave washers are often rated at 50% compression.
