When conventional stamped methods may not be applicable, this new capability provides you with high quality parts in smaller volumes. Water jet cutting is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other traditional cutting methods. A benefit of the water jet is the ability to cut material without interfering with its inherent structure, as there is no "heat-affected zone". Minimizing the effects of heat allows metals to be cut without harming or changing intrinsic properties. Water jet cutting provides the ability of short runs and prototype parts, eliminating the need to make production tooling.
The Right Material
Washers are generally either metal or plastic, depending on the use required. We offer a wide range of Belleville washers, available in different materials such as beryllium copper, spring-tempered phosphor bronze, high-carbon steel, stainless steel, and more.
A stainless steel Belleville washer will offer many benefits. It is a high-quality alloy that is often more durable than other metals and will not easily corrode or rust like other metals. Depending on the type of project you are working on, these unique properties make stainless steel an excellent choice when it comes to Belleville washers.
