Retaining rings

Retaining rings are engineered fasteners commonly used to hold different types of assemblies together. Usually installed into a small groove in the body of a shaft, or slot into a housing bore, retaining rings are single use, meaning that once they have been removed for any reason, they must be replaced. The need for retaining rings to accurately and reliably position, locate and retain component parts on shafts or in bores means that high levels of precision are required in the production of retaining rings.

Recent years have seen a preference in using retaining rings over the threaded fasteners traditionally used within the aerospace manufacturing industry. This is due to its range of advantages. Retaining rings don’t require threading, taping or drilling in product manufacture or the shaft, leading to a host of benefits including lower resource requirements in manufacture, reduced stress on the parts during the production process, and reduced weight of the component part.
