Disc (Belleville) Washers
- For maximum load build up with minimum washer deflection compared to a curved washer. They provide high loads in small spaces.
- Stacked in nested multiples disc (Belleville) washers provide extreme load build up.
- Stacked in inverted pairs disc (Belleville) washers provide maximum washer deflection (flexibility) and less load build up.
- Used for both dynamic loading as well as static – a typical static application is to take up thermal expansion / contraction on a bolted assembly.
