SPIROL International Corporation (Danielson, CT) has expanded its Disc Spring product line, which are conically-shaped, washer-type components designed to be axially loaded. They can be used individually or assembled into stacks to achieve the desired deflection characteristic, according to the company, and they also provide high levels of load/force within a small space. They are also highly predictable and reliable, making them idea for critical applications such as safety valves, clutch or brake mechanism, and supports for industrial pipe systems.
The two major additions are larger sixes per DIN 2093 Group 2 (up to 250mm in diameter), along with a range of stainless steel discs.
