Disc springs are rings with a slight conical shape. A disc spring has the advantage to be able to exercise a large force in a (very) small space. Because of this, the spring does have a short travel. Another great advantage is that a disc spring, in basis, has an unlimited longevity in case of normal use. You can set the suspension height yourself. Disc spring packages can be disassembled after use, and be reapplied.
Disc springs are applied in a large number of constructions, such as:
- Electro engines
- Braking systems
The disc springs supplied by ATV are in principle standardised and made of high grade Chrome Vanadium.
