Belleville washers, also known as disc washers, are one of the most common types of spring washers. These conical shaped washers can be used alone or stacked. Depending on the application, they can be stacked in either parallel form, series form, or a combination of both.
Parallel Form: All of the Belleville washers are facing the same direction. This will increase the load with the addition of each washer.
Series Form: All of the Belleville washers are stacked in opposite directions of each other. This will increase load deflection with the addition of each washer.
Regardless of the industry, Belleville washers are always in high demand. They can be found in almost anything from simple, old machinery to complex medical devices to satellites. Peninsula Spring manufactures custom Belleville washers for a wide variety of customers in the computer, medical, aerospace and defense industries.
