Belleville spring washers are especially suited for applications requiring high loads in small spaces. By combining them in varying sequences, each size gives numerous load-carrying possibilities. These washers have had all set removed during the manufacturing process.

VS Wave Spring in High Carbon and Stainless Steel Material
Wave Spring is normally used in thrust loading applications for small deflections, particularly where radial space is limited. A typical example is the axial loading of ball bearings.
The spring rate is approximately linear between 20% and 80% of available deflection.
Stainless Steel – VWS
• 302 or its equivalent
High Carbon Steel – VWC
• 1074 or its equivalent
Wave Spring is carried in inventory in plain finish only. Electroplating or other surface treatments are available upon request.

Disc springs are conical shaped washers designed to be loaded in the axial
Disc springs can be statically loaded, either continuously or intermittently, or cyclically defected i.e. dynamically loaded.
Manufactured under strict quality control to conform DIN2093, disc springs in this range are for arduous applications which require high resistance to fatigue.
Thickness less than 1.25mm: Carbon steel per C1074-1075 – CK67, Phosphate + oil finish. Thickness 1.25mm and up: Chrome Vanadium per SAE 6150 – 50CrV4, Phosphate + oil finish.
Some parts are available in Stainless Steel and other materials on request.
LOAD & DEFLECTION
Multiwave springs replace conventional round wire springs when space is critical; they will occupy only 1/3 to 1/2 of the compressed height space of a traditional round wire spring, while providing more deflection with the same load specifications.
VS Multiwave springs are used for all applications requiring tight load deflection specifications where axial space is critical.
A single filament of round edged, pre-tempered flat wire is used to form the springs from a continuous coil. This results in uniform diameters and wave heights.
