The job of a Shim Washer

Our Shim Washers are manufactured to the DIN 988 specification and are available in a Carbon Steel, Plain Finish.
Shim Washers are used to fill up excess gaps. By filling in the space, a Shim Washer can reduce wear and protect both the objects. Our standard Shim Washers begin from 0.1mm thick up to 1mm thick, and from 1.5mm thick are classed as Support Washers. Choosing the thickness of a Shim is done by measuring the gap between the two objects. For example if the gap between your object is 0.5mm thick, you would generally need a 0.5mm thick Shim Washer.

Advantages of Increased Abutment Circlip

Caleb Components offers both D2000 (DIN984) Internal Increased Abutment Circlips & D2100 (DIN983) External Increased Abutment Circlips in Carbon Steel.

Internal DIN984 Circlip – These are radially fitted Circlips for bores with grooves. These Circlips are quite similar in design to the standard DIN472 Internal Circlip, but has additional lugs around the circumference of the Circlip. These extra lugs enable more effective securing of machined parts with chamfers.

External DIN983 Circlip – Again radially fitted Circlips, but are used for shafts with grooves. These are also similar to the standard DIN471 External Circlip, but again has additional lugs around the circumference. The advantage of this type of Circlips is that it helps to maintain good contact with chamfered parts.

Both of these types of Increased Abutment Circlips are available to purchase online… Please use our links below.

The Inverted Lug Circlip

At Caleb Components, we offer both External Inverted Lug Circlips (M1408/N1408) and Internal Inverted Lug Circlips (M1308/N1308). Available in Carbon Steel.

External Type – The External Inverted Lug Circlip functions the same as an standard External Circlip only the lugs are reversed. The advantage of this type of Circlip is that it gives extra clearance around the outer rim of the Circlip. This can be a great asset particularly if the shaft on which the Circlip sits is rotating and needs to be clear of any hindrances.

Internal Type – Similar to standard Internal Circlips but again lugs are reversed. Thus this type of Circlip is very useful when extra clearance is required as no lugs will be protruding within the bore.

Cotter Pins & Retaining Pins

Here at Caleb Components we offer both Split Cotter Pins and Retaining Pins (R-Clips) in BZP finish.

A Split Cotter Pin is a simple fastening device. This part is simply pushed through a whole, which is just slightly bigger than outside diameter of the pin. As parts are manufactured in Mild Steel, the legs simply bend around the component to hold it in place.

Retaining Pins (R-Clips) serve a similar function to the Split Cotter Pin, the difference being the Retaining Pin is easy to remove as just one half of the pin locates on the outside diameter of the component.

Split Cotter Pins however, are a little more difficult to remove as the legs have to be bent back to their original position in order to extract the pin from its component.

Caleb Components Spring Tension Pins

For a number of years now, we have been supplying Spring Tension Pins to DIN 1481 (ISO 8752) Standard.
These pins are also known as Roll pins or Sellock pins.

The Spring Pin has many advantages as a fastener some of which are listed below:
Replacement for Solid Pins, Taper Pins, Cotter Pins, Split Pins, threaded items and many other methods of fastening previously used.
Excellent shear strength properties – Tests show that Spring Tension pins to be approximately 10% stronger as well as 10% lighter than that of mild steel solid pins.
With diameters slightly larger than that of the hole size they provide a tight spring fit into the hole providing a tight grip along the pins length.
By virtue of their design they offer constant on-going pressure making them resistant to vibration.
Costs are reduced by the elimination of reaming and threading. Simply drill and insert.
Pin shear strength can be increased further by inserting one pin inside another.

Our Spring tension Pins are available in both Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel.
Please check out our full range below!

Grub Screws Now Available!

We now supply Grub Screws (also known as Set Screws) to DIN 916 standard, ranging from M3 to M10 in various lenghts.
Material: A2 Stainless Steel.
Grub Screws are manufactured without a protruding head, meaning they can be driven fully into pre-drilled holes.
The lack of a head on a Grub Screw allows for the entire length of the shaft to be threaded, maximising thread engagement.

Please visit : https://springfasteners.co.uk/product-category/screws/grub-screws-set-socket-screws-iso-4026-a2-stainless/

Popular Shim Washers

At Caleb Components, one of our most popular products is our Shim Washers to DIN 988 standard. Shim Washers are manufactured to precise dimensions and are often used in assemblies to take up excess gaps, especially in bearing assemblies when they are fitted over shafts.

Our Shims are offered in Carbon Steel with a Plain Finish.

Sizes start from as small as 3 x 6 x 0.1mm to as large as 170 x 200 x 0.2mm with varying sizes and thicknesses in between.

E-CLIPS

Caleb Components stocks a wide range of E-clips to DIN 6799 (D1500) Standard, in both Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel.
Sizes range from 0.8mm up to 24mm.
E-clips are a more cost effective fastener than that of a circlip, by actually doing the same job. the main difference between the two, is that an E-Clip is secured on to the shaft at 90 degrees whilst a circlip is secured by inserting from the end of a shaft.

We also stock an imperial range of E-clips in Carbon steel, ranging from 3/32″ to 7/8″.

Recently added to our range is the N1540 Reinforced Imperial E-clips. These are a more heavy duty e-clip and offer greater strength.

Push On Fasteners

Caleb Components stocks a good range of Push On Fasteners.

Included in this our M1465/N1465 range. These are very similar to the Starlock Washers we also supply. The washers are pushed on to a shaft causing the prongs to grip the shaft firmly, and therefore locking the washers in place with initial tension.
These types are available in both Metric and Imperial, made with Carbon spring steel.

The other type of Push on fastener we stock is the N1405 Imperial Self Locking Rings range. Again these do a similar job to that of a Starlock Washer or M1465/N1465 Push on Fastener.
Material offered is Carbon Spring Steel.

If you have any enquiries regarding these parts, please let us know.

Wire Rings & Snap Rings

Caleb Components is a supplier of A0900 & A1000 Wire Rings.
These wire rings retain parts on a shaft working in a similar way to that of an External Circlip. However, in the case of these parts, there is no lug and therefore no Circlip Pliers are required.
Also should be noted, that the extraction force of this part will be less than a conventional type Circlip.

We also offer M2400 External Snap Rings and M2300 Internal Rings.
The External Snap Rings are mainly used for the assembly of needle cages, needle bearings and sealing rings.
Internal Snap Rings are axially fitted rings for bores with grooves. offering the same use of that of an External Snap Ring.

Please take a look at our range of wire rings and snap rings, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any enquiries you may have.

Caleb Components Washers

Here at Caleb Components we stock a large range of Shim Washers to DIN 988 standard, Flat Washers to DIN 125 standard, Shakeproof (tooth lock) Washers and Single Coil Washers to DIN 127B standard (also known as Spring Lock Washers).

Our Shim Washers start from as small as 3mm x 6mm x 0.1mm up to 100mm x 120mm x 1mm. These are made from Carbon Steel with a plain finish. These are sold in small pack quantities for your convenience. For larger bulk quantities please send us an enquiry and we will be more than happy to help.

Not long ago, we also introduced Flat Washers Form A (DIN 125) to our range. Our Flat Washers are bright zinc plated. These are used to protect the surface of the parts being tightened. Sizes range from M2 to M20.

We now also stock Internal and External Shakeproof Washers (these are also known as Toothlock washers). By placing these washers under the head of a bolt/nut helps grip into the surface of the part being tightened, thus helps prevent loosening of nut, bolt or screw. External sizes include 4mm, 6mm, 8mm 10mm and 12mm and Internal sizes include 2mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm.

Caleb also supplies DIN 127B Single Coil Spring Tension Washers (also known as Spring Lock washers). Sizes ranging from 3mm up to 30mm. Sing Coil Spring Tension Washers compress when tightened offering a spring force between fastener and component thus helping to prevent loosening of nut, bolt or screw.

Please let us know if you have any enquiries for any of our parts.

Our range of Circlips!

Caleb Components offers a wide range of different types of Circlips.

We offer standard DIN 471 External Circlips and DIN 472 Internal Circlips in both Carbon and Stainless Steel.
We also offer imperial Circlips (N1400/N1300) range in Carbon Steel.

Also part of our range is DIN 1460 External Heavy Duty Circlips again available in Carbon and Stainless Steel.

In both imperial and metric, we can also offer Inverted Lug Circlips (M1408/M1308/N1408/N1308) range. Inverted lug circlips work as a normal type circlip, however the lugs are inverted so for the external type for example, with the lugs facing inwards, offers a smooth uninterrupted flow around the outside of the circlip.

We also offer D2100 External increased abutment circlips. These are a useful for maintaining good contact with chamfered or radiused components.

M1800 & N1800 Crescent Rings are also something we offer here at Caleb Components. They offer a shallow but uniform shoulder on a relatively small shaft diameter.

Another product in our Circlip range is M1440 & N1440 Grip Rings. With a large section height they help to result in a high gripping pressure.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any enquiries on our circlip range.

Disc Spring selection!

Caleb Components offers a range of different type of disc spring washers.

The first range we supply is DIN 2093 Disc Spring Washers. These are a powerful conical washer used in minimal space with high force.
Standard material we offer is Carbon Steel with Phosphate and Oil finish.
Please check out our online store www.springfasteners.co.uk to see if we have a size to suit you.

Another range of Disc Spring we offer is our Ball Bearing Preload Disc Springs. Advantages of these include reducing number of components and simplifies fittings, take up manufacturing tolerances and quiets bearings.
These are offered in Carbon Spring Steel with Phosphate and Oil finish.

As well as the above range of Disc Springs, we can also offer DIN 6796 Heavy Duty Disc Spring Washers. Their ideal use is for bolted sections where they are put under the nut and/or bolt head to help prevent loosening.
Why not check out our range on our online shop to see if we have heavy duty disc spring to suit you. If not, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any enquires you may have. Again, also offered in Carbon Spring Steel with Phosphate and Oil finish.

We also offer, here at Caleb Components, both light duty and medium duty Serrated Safety Washers.
Using the same concept of the Disc Spring, the Serrated Safety Washer has the special feature of radial serrations on both surfaces. When tightened to near capacity these serrations bite into the mating surfaces, thus preventing the loosening of the screw due to vibration and other similar circumstances. Serrated Safety Washers offer a reduction in the outside dia thus corresponding with most screw head sizes, particularly hexagonal socket type screws.

We look forward to hearing from you with any enquires you may have.

Our Pins!

Looking for the right type of pin for your application can sometimes prove difficult. At Caleb Components, we offer a large variety of different pin types.

Starting with Solid Dowel Pins which are hardened and ground and offer a precise fit into a well machined hole. Being hardened, these offer a good durable, long lasting fit and has the added strength of say that of a Spring tension pin.

The Spring Tension Pin however, offers a greater variety of flexibility as these pins are hollow and are manufactured from a hardened spring steel which close down when inserted into a standard drill hole. The uses of these pins can be varied to include such uses as a hinge pin or used a fixing pin.

Another popular type sold by us is the DIN 94 Split Cotter Pin and the use of this part is different to the two mentioned above. Split pins are used as a secure fixing device as it is generally located through a hole midway through a shaft and therefore stops the pin from falling out of its location. These are easily secured in place by bending both legs in opposite directions. Removal can be a little more difficult as legs cannot always be bent back into position and often pins might have to be cut in order to be removed.

Not quite as popular as the Split Cotter Pins, the Retaining Pins offer a simple removable device, as they are simply pushed through a hole in a shaft and the other leg will fit over the shaft to hold in place. These parts are Zinc Plated to offer general corrosion resistance and due to their flexibility can be used on numerous occasions.

SHATTERED DISC SPRING!

I remember an incident many years ago, when working at a different fastener company a business who purchased from us several hundreds of pounds worth of Disc Springs. Within a week, we received a phone call from a very distraught customer who told us in no uncertain terms that the Disc Springs we supplied were shattering into hundred of small fragments.

Questioning the customer further, we discovered that they took it upon themselves to get the parts plated. Unfortunately what they didn’t realise was that you cannot simply electroplate this type of product. Even with hydrogen de-embrittlement, small fractures can occur within the Disc Spring. As soon as pressure is applied to the Discs, stress occurs and at this point the Disc is prone to fracturing.

Standard Disc Springs are phosphated and oiled as a finish, which is fine for normal indoor shelf life in dry non-humid conditions. However, where better corrosive resistance is required parts should be plated using non electro type methods such as mechanical zinc plate or delta tone for example.

We would be happy to discuss with you any plating / special material requirements you need according to your application.

Imperial Circlips

Imperial Circlips can be difficult to obtain, especially in small bag quantities.

Caleb Components offers imperial Circlips in Carbon Spring Steel (some sizes available in Stainless) up to 3″ for both External and Internal. 

We are aware that certain components still prefer to use imperial measurements and therefore we feel it only right to offer our customers imperial sizes to fulfill needs where possible.

Circlips offer a reasonably priced securing device that can simply be removed with the appropriate Circlip pliers and then re-used time and time again.

Caleb Components would welcome any enquiries that you may have. Parts can be ordered quickly and simply by going to our shop link at the top of this page.

 

Cheap Cotters that are cost effective!

The humble Split Cotter Pin may not look much like a fastener, but in reality, this cost effective mild steel pin is basically a disposable part.

Once inserted through the hole (usually through a shaft) the mild steel legs can easily be bent or knocked into shape. As one leg is longer than the other, location on to the leg is relatively easy to bend back on itself, thus securing the device in the hole and will prevent any parts sliding off the shaft.

The majority of our stock at Caleb Components Ltd, has a Bright Zinc Plate finish as standard which will help prevent early rusting.

Our sizes range from 1.6mm diameter (1/16″) to 13mm (1/2″). Lengths for larger sizes up to 180mm.

As well as being available in Mild steel we can also offer many parts in Stainless steel.

We would be pleased to see any enquiries, and will do our utmost to provide your needs.

We’ve grown our Spring Tension Pin collection!

Here at Caleb Components, we have now increased our Spring Tension Pin range.

We now offer Heavy Duty Spring Tension Pins to ISO 8752 (DIN 1481) Standard in both Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel. We also offer Light Weight Spring Tension Pins to ISO 13337 (DIN 7346) Standard also in Carbon Steel.

Larger sizes of Spring Tension Pins are available currently up to 50mm diameter and possibly beyond. Available in 4-6 weeks for non-stock items.

Although our current range for non-preferred sizes may be limited, we are always happy to offer a quotation for any requirements you may have. For example we can offer some pins with 7mm, 9mm and 13mm diameters.

As well as the more common materials as mentioned above, we can offer where necessary, parts in a higher grade stainless such as 316 (A4) Grade. This material for example, offers excellent corrosive resistant qualities and proves very useful in a marine environment. Some sizes may be available from stock.

Stock sizes available to order directly from springfasteners.co.uk or please send enquiries to us at sales@calebcomponents.com.

We look forward to receiving any enquiries you may have.

Disc Springs – small Discs that can pack a punch!

Disc Spring Washers; even the smallest sizes can pack a punch when it comes to load rating. Even sizes that start from 8mm outside diameter can offer up to nearly 450 newtons of force to flat. Despite relatively small sizes, they can offer huge forces compared to that of say normal Compression Springs.

Disc springs can be uses on a single basis or can be stacked in parallel (stacked the same way) will double the force of a single disc. To vary the arrangement further Disc Springs can also be stacked in series. For example, 10 single discs in series (back to back) would keep the force of a single disc but lengthen the deflection by 10 times.

Stack configuration is almost innumerable as such a wide variety of force and deflections can be made available by using any of the large size range available from Caleb Components. Again, unlike compression springs, which are of a fixed length, Disc Springs can be altered quickly and simply by adding or removing Discs from the stack.

As well as the standard DIN 2093 range, again Caleb Components can offer Ball Bearing Pre- Load, Serrated, and Heavy Duty Belleville Washers to DIN 6796.

Our company can offer full technical support and help and aid engineers to design the ideal stack for your components.

Shim Washers vs Flat Washers

At Caleb Components, we try to offer the full range of Shim Washers to DIN 988 and Flat Washers to DIN 125 A. The latter part being Bright Zinc Plated as standard.

Both parts have their advantages over the other.

Shim Washers are a precision made washer from high grade carbon steel and have specific tolerances on inside and outside diameters as well as thickness. Their main purpose is to make up gap space when and where required, hence we offer thicknesses ranging from just 0.1mm upwards. Using a variety of thicknesses, the gap can then be made up in an accurate way.

Flat Washers to DIN 125 on the other hand, are more of a basic or even crude form of washer. The purpose of these is generally to place them between a bolt head or under a nut to protect the surface that is being tightened against.

If you require any further information on these items, or many of the other products that we stock, then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Circlips… the forgotten fastener

Circlips the forgotten fastener.

When people ask me, “What do I do for a living?” I generally tell them that I sell fasteners. For them to better understand my answer I tell them to think of nuts, bolts and washers. Yes, these are all types of fasteners. However I do not really deal with these type of fasteners.

So before that glazed expression comes over their face, I hit them with what I do sell, which is Circlips, Spring Tension Pins and Disc Springs and other spring type metal parts.

Admittedly not many people have heard of Circlips, hence the title of this article. So I’m writing this article to give the humble Circlip a little higher profile.

So what is a Circlip?

Well a Circlip is a semi-flexible ring that either offers a tight fit on a groove on a shaft or in the case of Internal Circlips, in a groove around the inner bore of a tubular component.

They are generally manufactured from a carbon spring steel but can be manufactured in a wide range of materials including stainless steel, beryllium copper etc.

Depending upon whether the circlip is Internal type or External type they are generally opened up (External) or closed up (Internal) by the use of Circlip pliers, then located on or in the groove of the component and then released and the pliers extracted.

The springiness of the circlip then holds it in place within or on the groove.

The beauty of this product is the variety of use.

You see these things everywhere, including cars, photocopiers, aircraft, exercise equipment, machines, locking mechanisms, power tools, to name but a few.

What makes these Circlips great is there reliability, once there in or on their groove they will just sit there without any problems for a long time. Also given the fact that they offer a respectively high shear force they can take quite a pounding before being unseated from their groove.

If a threaded item should shear or you strip a thread on a component you could have serious and costly consequences. However if a Circlip should ping off simply apply another in their place. If extra force is required then we offer a DIN 1460 range being extra thick and thus being extra strong within the component.

At Caleb Components we offer from stock circlips that fit shafts and bores ranging from a tiny 3mm up to 300mm and also many Imperial sizes in carbon steel and also stock many sizes in stainless steel.

As we also stock many variations of the Circlip, such as E-Clips, Crescent Rings, Snap Rings, and Wire Rings.

So if you are looking for that Circlip or Disc Spring or Spring Tension Pin we are sure that we can find the part you are looking for.

Christmas…
