CIRTEQ® Standard ring types

The standard ring types from CIRTEQ® primarily include universally applicable retaining rings for shafts. Classic retaining rings in standard design are mainly used in mechanical engineering and in the automotive industry.

V retaining rings are among the standard rings. They have a smaller radial height, a low imbalance and are therefore suitable for use with low heights, such as in needle bearings or seals. K retaining rings also fall into this category. They are fitted with small tabs around the entire circumference. K-rings are suitable for concealed installation on machine parts. If you need circlips for splined shafts, heavy-duty circlips are the right choice. They are designed for high axial forces.

Radial mountable rings

This category includes various designs. E-rings as well as clip rings and half-moon rings are radially mountable rings. E-rings are universally applicable, enclose the groove with three lips and are used, for example, in vehicle construction and in the electrical industry. Clip rings generate greater contact pressure on shafts and crescent rings have a lower shoulder height than E-rings. They are suitable for bolts, bushes and chains.

Retaining rings to compensate for axial play

Wedge rings, curved rings and concave L-shaped rings are retaining rings to compensate for axial play. The wedge ring has a chamfer on the functional edge that compensates for the axial play. Concave L-rings are designed like K-rings and compensate for a small amount of axial play. Curved rings compensate for large play with a low load.

Self-locking rings

Self-locking rings are available from Titgemeyer in the form of toothed discs, clamping lock washers and grip rings. Toothed discs are concentric with a small radial height. They are suitable for shafts and bores without grooves and for fixing seals. Clamping discs are slightly larger and stronger than toothed discs. Gripping rings can absorb high axial forces.


CIRTEQ® Sprengringe lassen sich besonders schnell und einfach aufbringen. Sie werden auf Wellen und in Bohrungen mit sehr kleiner radialer Breite eingesetzt, zum Beispiel in Getrieben und bei der Fixierung von Lagern und der Befestigung von Dichtelementen. Sprengringe nach DIN 5417 haben eine abgerundete innere Kante. Daher kommen sie vor allem in Wälzlägern nach DIN 616 zum Einsatz. Runddraht-Sprengringe nach DIN9925 und DIN 9926 sind durch ihren runden Querschnitt besonders für kreisförmige Nuten mit Abdeckung geeignet, die man bei Kolbenbolzen, im Getriebe- und Fahrzeugbau und in der metallverarbeitenden Industrie findet.
