Detailed Description for Snap Ring

Spiral Snap rings are axially installed into housings/bores (internal) or onto shafts (external), making 360° contact with the groove. Spiral Snap rings have no ears or lugs to interfere with the assembly. These rings are manufactured by coiling flat wire into the shape of the finished Snap ring. Spiral rings are provided with a removal notch to simplify the removal process. Spiral Snap Rings can be economically produced in special alloys like stainless steel because the manufacturing process eliminates scrap.

Snap rings are typically made from carbon steel, stainless steel or beryllium copper and may feature a variety of finishes for corrosion protection depending on the type of environment in which they are used.

Tapered section Snap rings decrease symmetrically from the centre to the free ends, remaining circular when contracted or expanded within the limits of normal use. This assures contact with the groove along the entire periphery of the ring. These rings may be installed axially (horizontally along the centre point of an axis) or radially (externally along the radius of a circle). Depending on the size of the ring in question, it may be manufactured in one of two ways:

·         For smaller rings: using a die and stamping on a press from a coil of steel or copper

·         For larger rings: wire forming, in which rectangular wire is coiled into the shape of the ring.
