What are the advantages of disc springs?
Disc springs are subjected to extremely high loads in a small space. Compared with other types of springs, the deformation energy per unit volume of disc springs is larger. It has good cushioning and shock absorption ability, especially when using the stacked combination, the effect of shock absorption and energy dissipation is more significant because of the surface friction resistance.
Disc springs have variable stiffness characteristics. Change the ratio of the height of the truncated cone and the thickness of the disc, you can get different spring characteristic curves, linear, increasing, decreasing or a combination of their forms. In addition, variable stiffness characteristics can be obtained by combining discs of different thicknesses or by stacking discs with different numbers of pieces. Disc springs can have different load carrying capacity and characteristic curves by changing the number of discs or the combination of discs, so each size of disc can be adapted to a wide range of use, which makes the preparation and management of spare parts easier. In the case of combination springs subjected to very large loads, the small size of each disc facilitates manufacturing and heat treatment. When some discs are damaged, they only need to be replaced individually, thus facilitating maintenance and repair.
