manufactured with outside diameters ranging from 4 - 1000mm (0.157"
- 39.37"), spring thickness from 0.1 - 60mm (0.004"
- 2.36"), plus all standard and custom inch sizes.

dynamic, impacting or static load applications - depending on

permanent spring performance from low to elevated temperatures
(from -400°F to +1500°F) by selecting appropriate spring
materials (steel or others).
to stacking in numerous configurations (stacks).
to the very rigid DIN 2092 and 2093 disc spring specifications
(equivalent ASME, SAE or ASTM specification not available).
use Disc Springs?
- The spring
characteristic (linear, positive or negative) can be engineered
to a large extent by means of changing the disc spring properties
(dimensions, adding slots on inside or outside, stacking, etc.)
- Very slight
spring deflections can be achieved by use of single springs.
- Using disc
springs in series, spring deflection increases, without materially
affecting the forces involved.
- They can
be combined into groups of serial and parallel order in the same
stack for special applications.
- Disc springs
show a symmetrical buildup of forces around the rotating axis,
with this symmetry being maintained throughout the lines of the
- They show
a circular, symmetrical transmission of forces in the exact direction
of the spring axis - this being directly in contrast to actions
of coil springs.
- They permit
the use of the smallest possible
working area - this being notably in contrast to the space required
to accommodate the "dead windings" of a coil spring.
- Disc springs
are characterized by high forces resulting from moderate spring
deflections - in direct contrast to other spring types.
are a few examples of applications with disc springs in use:
- Control Valve
- Safety Valve
Quick Tool Changer (CNC Machines, etc.)
- Torque Converter
- Nozzle of
Spray Injection Molding Unit
- Brake System
- Brake Slack
- Over Load
