A fastener that secures a bearing in an application is called a snap ring or retainer ring. To prevent components from moving during operation, a part of the retaining ring extends from the groove and forms a shoulder.
The snap rings are essential components for a wide range of applications, from automotive to medical to military. Steeltech snap rings are precision-machined components used in a variety of applications, including industrial and automotive. They are designed to secure components in place with high precision and strength. Our snap rings are available in a variety of sizes and styles, including internal and external snap rings, multi-turn snap rings, and slotted snap rings for applications requiring more flexibility. They are crafted from high-grade steel for superior strength and durability. One of the key advantages of Steeltech snap rings is their precision. They are manufactured to very tight tolerances, which ensures that they fit snugly into the groove or recess they are designed for, providing a secure hold on the component. This precision also ensures that the snap ring will function properly and reliably over time, without causing any damage to the shaft or bore.
