About Mubea Disc Springs
Mubea Incorporated is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mubea. All Mubea disc springs, belleville disc springs are manufactured in Daaden, Germany where they have been produced for more than 40 years, combining years of experience with updated quality control methods. Mubea Incorporated keeps an extensive stock and sells the disc springs out of our Florence, KY plants to United States, Canada and Mexico.
Mubea disc springs are used in many types of applications. These applications range from industrial applications, such as safety valve systems placed 3000 m below sea level, to satellites in outer space.
A team of highly qualified engineers will work to find individual solutions to every spring problem by utilizing ongoing development of technologies, creativity, and an innovative approach. In addition to the strong engineering support, testing requirements can also be met with our extremely well-equipped laboratories.
Mubea is a family owned company with a high degree of flexibility and quick decision making capability. These decisions are focused around long-term and lasting company success. Mubea has greater than 5,000 employees in 30 offices and global production facilities. Many customers attest to company’s high performance level and product quality. In the European, North American, and Asian markets, Mubea supplies products to the most reputable OEM and TIER 1 automobile manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Fiat, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Mitsubishi, Renault, Suzuki, Toyota, VW and several others.
Mubea ‘s disc spring product range includes conventional disc springs, internally and externally slotted disc springs, wave disc springs, disc spring stacks and special disc springs. Mubea’s disc springs are manufactured to DIN 2093 specification and range in size from 8 mm to 800 mm outer diameter. Mubea also offers a new type of technology called our Generation II Disc Springs. This new technology offers significant improvement in fatigue life while reducing diameter and assembly space. In addition to 51 CrV 4 (SAE 6150), Mubea stocks a variety of antimagnetic, corrosion-resistant and heat-resistant materials for specialty designed applications.
Quality is a corporate commitment to Mubea with continuous process improvement and zero-defect mentality being primary targets. To achieve these targets, a disciplined approach to the optimization of the current manufacturing processes through strict project management in the development stage regarding stability and efficiency is essential. In addition to the need for tight control of manufacturing and development is the need for a customer oriented approach. Through strong customer support, Mubea is able to meet its customer’s current and future needs. DIN EN ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 16949 as well as ISO 14001 are standard certifications held by Mubea. These certifications are annually audited by accredited certification bodies.
Due to their good recycling ability, Mubea products are already environmentally friendly. Mubea’s goal to increase the use of lightweight technology further supports the idea of environmental protection.
Mubea maintains high internal production standards to ensure a good quality level and economic efficiency through innovative and rigorous production methods, starting with the cold rolling of our own material to very tight tolerances.
Dependent upon spring thickness, blanks are manufactured by conventional stamping (Group 1), fine blanking (Group 2) or plasma arc/flame cutting (Group 3). High thickness springs are machined all over to remove surface imperfections. Depending on the requirement, disc springs can be heat-treated to achieve a martensite or bainite grain structure to extremely tight hardness tolerances. Shot-peening is performed on the parts to improve fatigue life. Phosphating and oiling is the standard corrosion protection and is done in house.
Continuous monitoring of the production steps guarantees the high quality of Mubea disc springs.
