The Wave Ring is a spiral retaining ring with an axial wave form. It acts like a standard
retaining ring with the additional feature of compressibility . It compensates for the
overall length tolerance of stacked components, while still acting as a retaining ring.
Once assembled the Wave Ring will reduce looseness and vibration in the assembly.
Designed to fit into a groove, the Wave Ring applies pressure in two directions: against
the groove wall and against the assembly components. Single, double or multiple
turns in the Wave Ring are possible as well as a choice of materials, including our
standard 17-7 PH stainless and carbon steel.
