Disc springs are discs that can be axially loaded, which are concave in the axial direction. Disc springs require less space than other spring types and are especially suitable for designs that do not require a high spring length.
When to use it?
- When an application requires disc spring
characteristics which are only possible in
metal at a considerable expense (slot design)
- For compensation of axial clearances and
- For vibration dampening
- For noise reduction
- When a non-magnetic material is required
- For electrical and thermal insulation
When not to use it?
- When constant spring forces are necessary
over a wide temperature range
- When high spring forces are required
