"Springs & Retaining Rings"

Springs and retaining rings are mechanical components found in countless assemblies in a variety of sectors. Springs introduce load to an assembly through tension, compression, or torsion. Retaining rings fasten components in a housing when engaging a groove, or on a shaft.

As we’ll explore, springs used in motion system designs come in three main types: compression, extension, and torsion. For retaining rings, there are also three main types: tapered section, constant section, and spiral.
