Spiral Wound Retaining Rings
are manufactured by coiling thin section flat wire. This process yields a
retaining that supports medium to high thrust loads and still remains flexible enough to be installed
by hand. Spiral rings offer engineers more clearance than rings which have removal lugs, so if clearance
diameter is a concern, then a spiral ring should fit the bill.
Most spiral rings are designed with multiple turns, producing a full 360 degree retaining shoulder.
Many material and finish choices are available and
custom designs typically do not require any custom tooling, so specials are very economical to produce.
Certain series have sizes available down to 1/4 inch. Please call if you require a size that is smaller
than sizes listed.
