Spring Retaining Ring for Shaft v.s. Retaining Ring for Hole, Know Their Differences

April 18,2022

The retaining ring is installed in the round hole and is used for the axial movement of the fixed parts. The outer diameter of this kind of retaining ring is slightly larger than the diameter of the assembly circular hole. When installing, it is necessary to use circlip pliers, insert the pliers nose into the pliers hole of the retaining ring, and clamp the retaining ring before placing it into the pre-machined inner groove of the round hole. The retaining ring mainly plays the role of axial fixation, in which the conical surface and the retaining ring are fixed with a high degree of centering. Different retaining rings have different installation methods. What is the difference between the elastic retaining ring for the shaft and the retaining ring for the hole?

👉Difference in tools

 

The main difference is: the shaft retaining ring pliers are a special tool for disassembling and assembling the shaft spring retaining rings. The jaws are opened when the hand of the shaft retaining ring pliers is tightened; the hole retaining ring pliers are the spring retaining rings for disassembling and assembling holes. For loops, the jaws are closed when the hand is tight.

 

👉Difference in characteristics

 

  1. The positions and sizes of the two holes of the snap spring pliers are different.

 

  1. The shape is different and the force is different. The two small holes used for the shaft are outside the retaining ring, and the workpiece should be opened outwards to install the workpiece. When installing, use a circlip pliers, insert the pliers into the pliers holes of the retaining ring, and expand the retaining ring before it can be placed in the pre-processed on the shaft groove. In contrast to the hole used, the circlip pliers must be used during installation, insert the pliers nose into the pliers hole of the retaining ring, and clamp the retaining ring before placing it into the pre-machined inner groove of the round hole.

 

  1. The shaft is pressed on the shaft, and is often used to block the bearing, and the hole is fixed in the inner hole to block the outer ring of the bearing to prevent movement.

 

👉Difference in installation locations

 

The retaining ring for the hole is installed in the circular hole and is used for the axial movement of the fixed parts. The outer diameter of this retaining ring is slightly larger than the diameter of the assembled circular hole. The shaft retaining ring is a kind of axial movement installed on the grooved shaft and used as a fixed part. The inner diameter of this type of retaining ring is slightly smaller than the diameter of the assembly shaft.
