Since more than a century, SEEGER is synonymous for high-quality and reliable retaining rings. That’s why many groove rings and circlips are simply referred to today as SEEGER ring.
Not only the quality with which each individual retaining ring is manufactured is outstanding, but also the flexible application possibilities, e.g. the different uses in mechanical engineering.
SEEGER rings have become firmly established as a simple but highly effective component for axial securing in a wide range of industries and applications. Especially in the automotive sector and in the energy sector.
SEEGER Orbis' solutions are, however, not limited to standardized retaining rings. We also offer you individual solutions, precisely tailored to your requirements.

SEEGER rings for shafts are usually made of high-quality spring steel, but can also be made of stainless steel or bronze. Depending on the requirements, the retaining rings are also available in different sizes, thicknesses and shapes.
SEEGER rings for bores are also available in different sizes and designs. The retaining rings, too, are made of high-quality spring steel, but may also be made of other materials.
SEEGER rings are designed in such a way that, depending on the shape and size, they can be mounted on a wide variety of bearing types. Guide bearings, fixed bearings and floating bearings can be axially secured simply and reliably, thanks to the retaining rings.
Retaining rings are fasteners that are used to secure a component in place within a housing or on a shaft. They are typically made from spring steel and come in a variety of sizes and styles to suit different applications.
There are several types of retaining rings, including external, internal, and E-style rings. External rings are installed on the outside of a shaft or housing and are used to retain components such as bearings or gears. Internal rings are installed on the inside of a housing or bore and are used to retain components such as bushings or sleeves. E-style rings are a variation of internal rings and have a slightly different shape.
Retaining rings offer several advantages, including ease of installation and removal, cost-effectiveness, and the ability to be used in tight spaces. They also provide a secure hold without the need for special tools or equipment.
Retaining rings are typically installed using a pliers or a special tool called a retaining ring pliers. The ring is stretched over the component or into the housing or bore and then released, allowing it to spring back into place and secure the component.
Retaining rings can be removed using a pliers or a special tool called a retaining ring pliers. The ring is stretched and then released, allowing it to be removed from the component or housing.
Retaining rings are typically made from spring steel, which is strong and durable while also being able to maintain its shape after being stretched. Other materials such as stainless steel, aluminum and plastic are also used.
The selection of a retaining ring will depend on several factors, including the size and shape of the component or housing, the amount of force that will be applied, and the operating conditions (temperature, corrosive environment, etc.). It is recommended to consult with a retaining ring expert or manufacturer for the best recommendations.
To ensure the quality of the retaining rings you purchase, it is important to purchase from a reputable manufacturer or supplier. It is also recommended to check for industry certifications and compliance with relevant standards.
