Leadership in Wind Energy

The great thing about our business at J.W. Winco is that we get to sell components to every possible industry. When a new industry rises to the fore, odds are good that industry will need our parts. It can be quite exciting!

A great illustration of this is that recent upstart, windpower. What only a few years ago was a novelty is now becoming a valid and essential part of the world's energy resources. And a key component to wind turbines is something so simple it has been around since the earliest years of the Industrial Age: the washer. Well, that simplicity can be deceptive: when you're talking about something as large and carefully engineered as a wind turbine, you're going to need washers of excellent design and quality.

The February issue of the new Windpower Engineering magazine showcases several companies for their "Leadership in Wind Energy." J.W. Winco was fortunate to be included in this competition (you can vote for us here on the Windpower Engineering Web site). As part of our feature we presented some of our most popular series of washers appropriate to the windpower industry, which you see pictured here.

From top to bottom, here are our DIN 6319 C and DIN 6319 D Metric Spherical Seat and Dished Washers, our GN 6339 Heavy Duty Washers, and our GN 350.3 Spherical Leveling Washers. Click on those links to find out all the technical information on these components.

These are just some of inch and metric size, high quality washers we offer. And we're happy to provide washers to everyone from the manufacturer of high tech wind turbines to the Boy Scout making a Pine Derby car. You can view the whole selection in Section 11 of our online catalog, Jig Fixture and Fastening Components.
