Disc spring's combination and loading characteristic
Can get various loading characteristics
by combined disc springs
Parallel stacking
Load is per single spring × No. of springs in parallel and deflection is same
Series stacking
Deflection is amount per disc spring × No. of springs in series and load is same
Parallel / Series stacking
As shown in the figures, the load and deflection change depending on whether the springs are stacked in parallel or series.
