Rotor Clip’s multi-turn wave springs offer a cost-saving method to pre-load and retain bearings in a variety of applications. The radial wall of the wave spring offers a wide supporting surface and the bearing load in the waves provides 100% axial transmission of the load. In place of a cover plate, the entire assembly can be held in place using a two-turn spiral retaining ring, which offers a 360-degree closed surface of contact for the wave spring. The combination of retaining ring and wave spring offers an economical way of accomplishing the bearing preload and retention task.
