Laminar Retaining Rings
FEY provides both single and double wound retaining rings for a variety of uses where parts need to be fixed axially. This includes construction, argricultural machinery, mechanical engineering, automotive and aerospace applications. There are several advantages to using FEY Laminar retaining rings. The roundness of the ring over 360° ensures strong contact with the groove bottom and continuous support around the circumference. This allows for the ring to remain reliably retained in the groove, even under high axial load. The ring remains well balanced during rotation and is absolutely free from material defects.
Internal Rings for Bores
Internal Retaining rings are used where axial fixing is required in a housing bore. FEY offers type ESB (single wound) and DSB (double wound) rings.
External Rings for Shafts
External Retaining rings are used where axial fixing is required on a shaft or housing outside diameter. FEY offers type ESW (single wound) and DSW (double wound) rings.
Special Purpose Rings
FEY offers Special Purpose Rings like style DMS (double wound) with its locking feature designed to resist higher centrifugal forces from shaft speeds that are beyond the range of standard rings. Additional styles are available for high thrust loading and precision component locating.
Run and Installation Tests
Run and installation tests, under operating conditions, must be performed in each case before standard production of our laminar rings can begin to determine whether the desired effects can be achieved.
