Multi-Turn Spiral Rings make 360? contact with the groove.

Spiral retaining rings can either be single or multi-turn, depending on the application requirements.

Multi-turn, spiral-wound retaining rings consist of two or more turns of in-house rolled flat wire material with rounded edges. The material is coiled on edge to provide a gapless ring with 360º of retention. Spiral rings offer space savings in a radial direction since there are no assembly lugs as with tapered retaining rings. (Note: selection of a retaining ring—tapered, constant section or spiral-- depends upon the parameters of an application)

TruWave Wave Ring

TruWave Wave Ring:

This design combines a standard retaining ring with a wave spring by having an axial wave form in a retaining ring design. It is ideal for compensating axial play because of tolerances, thermal expansion etc. Other features include:

  • Eliminates shims
  • Exact load adjustment based on wire dimension, no. of turns & waves
  • No assembly/disassembly lugs offers space saving in a radial direction
  • Edges contain a radius, no stamping burrs that could damage the housing/shaft
  • No special tooling for exotic materials
  • No special tooling for installing and removal necessary
  • Special ends available for specific applications
  • Heavy duty sections available for higher rotational capacities
  • Assembly/Disassembly similar to 2-turn retaining rings
