Belleville Washers – the Lee Spring power pack

Ex-stock or custom Belleville washers in a complete package from Lee Spring are often used to solve vibration, thermal expansion, relaxation and bolt creep problems. Their conical configuration enables them to support high loads with relatively small deflections and solid heights compared to helical springs. Belleville washers may also be used as locking devices in applications with low dynamic loads.

Belleville washers are useful for adjustments because different thicknesses can be swapped in and out and they can be configured differently to achieve essentially infinite tunability of spring rate while only filling up a small part of the technician's tool box. They are ideal in situations where a heavy spring force is required with minimal free length and compression before reaching solid height.

Some of the advantages of Belleville washers include: high load capacity in a small space which is not possible with ordinary coil springs, thus affecting the important economics in housing materials. The ability to achieve linear or non-linear regressive load deflection characteristics while they can compensate for different expansion rates in a joint and still maintain a high tension, or can act as a shock absorber or perform a dampening function. It is also valuable that deflection and load characteristics of Belleville washers can be changed by stacking these washers in series, parallel, or series - parallel combinations.

Lee Spring Belleville Washers are manufactured from 300 Series Stainless Steel. This alloy offers good corrosion resistance for most applications. Additionally, Lee Spring Belleville Washers are passivated in accordance with specification ASTM A967 to remove contaminants and further improve resistance to corrosion. 300 Series Stainless Steel is slightly magnetic and is recommended for any applications where the temperature is below 260°C.

Exotic alloys - Lee Spring explain what they are and when to use them
Materials with high alloy content, known as super alloys or exotic alloys, offer enhanced performance properties including excellent strength and durability, and resistance to oxidation, corrosion and deforming at high temperatures or under extreme pressure. Because of these properties, super alloys make the best spring materials for demanding working conditions, which can be encountered across various industry sectors, including the Automotive, Marine and Aerospace sectors as well as oil and
REDUX™ Wave Springs from Lee Spring – an enabling technology
Lee Spring REDUX™ wave springs offer a way of performing a spring function in minimal spaces – even perhaps where no other spring could work effectively. Typically, REDUX wave springs occupy just 30-50% of the compressed height space of the conventional round wire springs, yet they offer more deflection with the same load specifications. This not only helps to save space in the applications but also reduces the production costs,
