Title (EN) BELLEVILLE SPRING GUIDE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GUIDAGE DE RESSORTS BELLEVILLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus and method are provided for decreasing frictional effects in stacks of Belleville springs and limiting deflection of the springs. In one embodiment, carriers for springs overlap and minimize the effects of lateral forces that are developed as springs in a stack are loaded. Carriers may be used on mandrel guides, in cylindrical guides or without a guide. In other embodiments, maximum load and defection of springs may be provided by the spring carriers.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un appareil et un procédé pour diminuer les effets de frottement dans les piles de ressorts Belleville et pour limiter le fléchissement des ressorts. Dans un mode de réalisation, des supports pour les ressorts se chevauchent et minimisent les effets des forces latérales créées lorsque les ressorts dans une pile sont chargés. On peut utiliser des supports sur des guides mandrins, dans des guides cylindriques ou sans guide. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, la charge et le fléchissement maximum des ressorts peuvent être fournis par les supports des ressorts.
