A snap ring and washer is one of the most common parts of modern machinery. Used for dozens of applications they all fulfill a similar role. With how commonly used snap rings and washers are you would think you could order them from just about anywhere. This is generally a true statement. That is until you realize that your bearing is a less than common size. That’s how Senasys Machine can help!
We recently had a customer come in looking to see if we could find or make him a bigger snap ring or a washer to hold the bearing inside. If we were able to find a washer, the snap ring’s groove would have to be widened as well. We ended up making the washer and widening the snap ring’s groove to fit the washer behind the ring. Finished piece consisted of a washer behind the ring to hold in the bearing. See images below.
