Double snap ring how is it made? Now let’s talk about this topic. In mechanical design, double-layer circlips often bear impact alternating loads, so the double-layer circlip material should have high yield strength, fatigue strength, impact toughness and good heat treatment performance. The commonly used double-layer circlip materials are excellent * carbon steel, alloy steel and non-ferrous metal alloy. The main functions of the double-layer circlip are: controlling movement or limiting position, such as the double-layer circlip in cam mechanism, clutch, valve, etc; buffer and vibration absorption, such as double-layer snap ring of vehicle, double-layer snap ring in spring yellow coupling, etc; store energy, such as double-layer circlips in clocks and instruments; measure the force and torque, such as the double-layer circlip in the double-layer circlip scale and dynamometer;
The manufacturing process of snap ring mainly includes winding, manufacturing of hook or processing of two end faces, heat treatment and process performance test, as well as necessary strong pressure or shot peening and other strengthening treatments. There are two methods of winding: cold winding and hot winding. The double-layer circlip steel wire with a diameter of less than 8-10mm shall be cold rolled when manufacturing the double-layer circlip. The cold rolled double-layer circlip is mostly cold drawn and pre overheated excellent * carbon double-layer circlip steel wire, which is only tempered at low temperature after being rolled to eliminate internal stress. The double-layer circlip steel wire with larger diameter is used to manufacture the double-layer circlip. According to the different diameter of the double-layer circlip wire, the hot coil temperature is selected in the range of 800-1000 ¡æ. Quenching and tempering treatment should be carried out after rolling.
For the important compression double-layer circlip, in order to ensure that the bearing surface at both ends is perpendicular to its axis, the end ring should be ground flat on a special grinder to reduce the possibility of deflection when loaded; For tension and torsion of double-layer circlips, hooks shall be made at both ends to facilitate connection and loading. In order to improve the bearing capacity of the double-layer snap ring, it can be subjected to strong pressure, strong tension treatment or shot peening treatment. The strong pressure treatment of compressing the double-layer circlip is to compress the double-layer circlip to contact each circle with a load exceeding the elastic limit of the double-layer circlip material after the double-layer circlip is rolled, and keep it for 6-48h, so as to produce plastic deformation in the double-layer circlip wire, and generate residual stress in the double-layer circlip after unloading. Because the direction of residual stress is opposite to the working stress, the * large stress of the double-layer circlip in operation is smaller than that of the double-layer circlip without strong pressure treatment, so the bearing capacity of the double-layer circlip can be improved. Tensile double-layer snap ring is subject to strong tensile treatment. After the double-layer circlip is subjected to strong pressure and strong tension, it is not allowed to carry out any heat treatment, and it is not suitable to work at a high temperature of 150-450 ¡æ and long-term vibration, otherwise it will lose the above effect. The above is about the manufacturing method of double-layer snap ring.
