Disc springs are common in many industries. The main applications are those that require a small deflection for high force levels. Disc springs can easily be stacked in a variety of arrangements to vary their deflection rates.
The disc guide is fitted to the lower compression plattern and the compression cylinder to the upper plattern. The disc springs are stacked in the desired combination on the disc guide. The SM1000 pump is operated to rais the ram and compress the springs.
The spring discs can be stacked in parallel, in series or in a combingation of series and parallel.
