Spring rings are sometimes known as wire rings. The basic design includes two coils although there can be more if necessary. Unlike other types of rings, this design does not necessarily have to form a full or complete coil. A good example of this spring design is a common key ring.
This spring may be used in the production of different types of jewelry, in particular the clasp that is used on the pieces. Thanks to the spring, it’s possible to open the clasp and then close it once the necklace or chain is around the neck. The same idea applies to the springs used on lengths of chains used in towing equipment and various types of production machinery.
The team at Custom Spring Corporation can help you by supplying springs for machinery and equipment that is no longer in production. We can provide standard sizes or our team can design a custom spring that is a perfect fit for your equipment.
Spring rings (sometimes called circlips) and magazine springs are two very important components in many applications. Although spring rings are incredibly versatile and used in numerous applications, magazine springs are straightforward and are required for feeding ammunition into a firearm safely and properly. We manufacture both spring rings and magazine springs to preexisting and custom specifications.
Spring rings are everywhere, but they are most commonly found in jewelry as the clasp holding the ends of a necklace, bracelet, or anklet together. When used in jewelry, they come in a variety of metals, which include but are not limited to gold and sterling silver. Of course, larger spring rings can be found in other applications, too. Sometimes, they are called retaining rings, which are essentially fasteners that hold components onto a shaft or in a housing. In these applications, they are made of materials such as carbon or stainless steel, or sometimes beryllium copper. There are several protective finishes depending on the application, as well.
One of the most common uses for spring rings is in transmissions, where they must meet the demands of powertrain systems. These rings must be able to withstand wear and tear, but they must also be affordable. Some other uses for spring rings include on shafts and cylinders within engines – both large and small. Again, the parts must be durable, able to withstand large amounts of heat and wear, and affordable. We can customize spring rings and transmission rings according to your unique specifications and your budget.
