The process produces rings that have no protruding ears or burrs to interfere with performance. Standard versions are carbon steel in 1/2 to 11-in. diameters. Special designs in diameters from 0.200 to 84 in. are available. The rings can also be produced in stainless steel because coiling produces no scrap. Easyto-install Snap Rings can withstand high loads and impact loading, replace costly components in industrial applications, and are interchangeable with Eaton/Tinnerman-style snap rings.
