What is a disc spring?
A conical spring washer that can handle very high forces.
A disc spring is a spring washer with a conical shape. This shape gives the spring washer its flexible effect.
Disc springs are also called Belleville spring washers and conical spring washers.
The properties of the disc spring make it unique in applications where space is limited - but where high force is wanted. By using disc springs you can achieve high force and very little travel (deflection).
Disc springs can also be used as vibration dampers or to provide a damping effect.
Potential applications and effects can be adjusted by stacking disc springs
