Retainer rings may not be the first piece of hardware most people think of, but they perform an essential function in industrial operations comparable to more recognized components like nuts and bolts. As the name suggests, retainer rings are circular-shaped fasteners that retain components on a shaft or bore. Having a simple but effective ring-shaped design, they can come in a broad selection of sizes and materials to suit different applications. In automobiles, for example, you would be likely to find retaining rings in systems like powertrain, steering, and transmission assembly equipment. However, while available in different styles, all retaining rings work in the same way. Here in this blog, we will discuss the ways in which retaining rings function and can be used.

Data buses are a common feature of computer systems, serving to transfer data between components that are situated on different motherboards, system boards, or computers. Oftentimes, these transfers come in the form of relaying data to and from memory, central processing units (CPUs), and other such components. Additionally, each data bus features its own distinct bandwidth that determines how many data bits can be handled at one time.

With various systems operating simultaneously to make flight possible, aircraft comprise many important part types, all of which must meet or exceed high standards. One popular part type across a myriad of aircraft systems is the pressure hose, that of which can be found in a range of aircraft, from light aircraft to twin-aisle, wide-body aircraft. Unlike typical hose designs, an aircraft pressure hose is designed specifically for pressurized systems. This means that they carry pressurized fluids like hydraulic fluids, rather than typical fluids. To learn more about how to choose the correct pressure hose for your applications, read on.
