Retainer ring wire

steel retainer ring wire
A failed retaining ring can be costly for your customer in terms of lost time and repair expenses. Therefore, it is important to choose a steel wire profile that can handle high mechanical loads and corrosive agents without malfunctioning or breaking down entirely. 

Supporting your design

You’ll find that our wide range of high-carbon steel profiles for retaining and snap rings can cater to specific designer requirements. We offer oil-tempered, patented and annealed inlet wire to achieve the right tensile strength and hardness of your retainer ring.

Maximize your production efficiency

Choosing a profiled circlip wire also has advantages for your production process. Thanks to the profile’s consistent internal structure and narrow tensile range, you’ll achieve an excellent forming process and minimize your machine settings. The edges of the profile remain smooth after forming, and you’ll produce less scrap on larger diameters compared to stamping rings from sheet metal.  Because the wire can be delivered on coils of up to 1000kg, you’ll be able to reduce your machine changeovers and maximize your production efficiency.
