TFC is offering a range of disc springs — conically formed annular discs that are loaded axially and provide a predetermined force at various operating heights.

TFC disc springs

Because of the flexibility by which they can be assembled, either singly or in columns, TFC disc springs are able to offer designers specific spring characteristics dependent upon how they are arranged.

With their largely self-damping characteristics, low operating heights, lack of setting or fatigue under normal loads and stresses, they are suitable for a range of static and dynamic applications.

TFC disc springs are manufactured to recognised DIN standards and are available in a range of materials to suit even the most hazardous applications.

Key features and benefits

  • The conically formed annular discs are loaded in the axial direction
  • They take up manufacturing tolerances and quieten bearings
  • They reduce the numbers of components and simplify fitting
  • Axial space is minimised
  • There is a small load change with axial deflection
  • Automatic bearing alignment is by a light pre-load
  • Load is evenly applied around bearing outer ring
  • Discs are manufactured from either BS1449 Pt1CS70 or DIN 17222 50CrV4, deburred so that all edges are rounded
  • They conform to DIN 2093 dimensions and load characteristics
  • All disc springs are austempered to provide the optimum blend of ductility and hardness in the range HRC 42-52
