Retaining Rings

MW Components manufactures custom precision-engineered retaining rings, also known as coiled rings, snap rings, round wire rings, circlips, square section rings, rectangular section rings, custom-shaped sections rings, or tapered section rings. Our retaining rings are available in various end configurations for use in multiple applications.

There are two main types of retaining rings—internal rings, which are assembled inside a cylinder where the ring fits inside a hole (or bore), and external rings, which are assembled on the outside of the shaft.
