INTERNAL CIRCLIPS FOR BORE HOLES, FOR QUICK AND SOLID FASTENINGS
The inner circlips are so-called “elastic” metal rings, used by professionals to make assemblies on cylindrical supports - all without screws, bolts or washers! Würth has developed its own series of internal circlips for bore holes, which we invite you to discover here.
PRINCIPLE OF THE CIRCLIP OR ELASTIC RING: ASSEMBLING ELEMENTS WITHOUT SCREWING
Circlips allow the fixing of components without having to thread, tap, screw ... In other words, they allow you to save a lot of time and money. You just need to place this flat ring in a groove made on an axis or in a bore, using a circlip pliers, to finalize your assembly. Please note that:
• external circlips, with a generally narrower opening, must be slid into the internal grooves of the mechanisms
• inner circlips, with a generally larger opening, which must be housed in the grooves peripheral to the support.
INTERNAL CIRCLIPS OF ALL SIZES, IN SPRING STEEL OR STAINLESS STEEL
Vehicles, washing machines, photocopiers... Circlips offer many applications in various industries. They are also available in many sizes and various materials, to cover these multiple demands. Within our range of interior circlips for professionals, you will find:
• elastic rings of form J in various diameters (8.7 mm, 43.5 mm, 117 mm, etc.), corresponding to more or less wide holes
• elastic rings made of spring steel or stainless steel, etc.
HOW TO INSTALL AN ELASTIC RING USING SUITABLE PLIERS?
Do you want to know more about how to install an internal circlip? Here is a quick reminder of the different steps to follow. First make sure to get an internal circlip pliers (and not its counterpart reserved for external circlips), then:
• observe the state of the circlip throat; clean it if it appears dirty
• check that you have enough space to pass your circlip
• insert the “nipples” of the pliers into the small holes in the ring in order to spread or tighten it, until it is placed in its housing - avoid pressing too hard so as not to damage the elastic ring , which could weaken the assembly later.
That's it, consider it fixed in place!
