Dome washers have a very high load capacity with a small overall deflection. Often referred to as a semi-spherical washer, dome washers have the form of a truncated-sphere. These types of washers are commonly used in applications where assemblies need a part to eliminate side play, control rattle, maintain assembly tension, compensate for expansion or contraction in materials after assembly, or to absorb intermittent shock loads and provide a controlled reaction under dynamic loads. These units are economical, occupy little space and generally weigh less than comparable wire springs.
