At Simply Bearings we stock a comprehensive range of bearing snap rings in a wide range of diameters. These retaining rings are designed to snap into a groove in the outer track of a roller or ball bearing, allowing the part of the ring left protruding to act as a retainer to hold the assembly in place. Commonly used in motors, pistons and turbines, these bearing snap rings are manufactured from carbon steel and are supplied in packs of two rings.
A bearing snap ring has many applications in industry and machinery and can be sized from a few millimetres to over a metre. A snap ring is designed to permit rotation but prevent lateral movement, so they stay firmly locked in place. It's important that snap rings are always correctly fitted so they don't deform and ride up the rounded edge, which forces them out of their groove and distorts their retaining function.
These types of bearing snap ring are known for their ability to retain tolerances. They give a lot of strength to ball bearing shaft applications. The advantages of using this kind of snap ring are ease of assembly, low cost and accuracy of positioning, since bearing snap rings only need a groove to slot into. These types of rings also function with a minimum of surface preparation for either the housing or the shaft. These Flat Wire Snap Rings maintain a constant thickness from centre to ends and are manufactured from carbon steel, which is strong and hard-wearing, making it ideal for these long-lasting rings.
