A feature of a disk or plate spring is the ability to accept a high load at a low deformation, especially in a limited space. Therefore, the load/strain ratio of the disk springs is particularly suitable for static loading, impact dispersion, propellant mass depreciation, and force measurement. When properly chosen, springs have a long life and a low creep ratio.
The most frequent applications of plate springs are various couplings, lifting vehicles, safety valves, cargo equipment, etc. They are used in such branches of industry as railway engineering, oil and gas industry, instrument building, energy complex, mechanical engineering, mining industry.
