Any quality oriented manufacturer of retaining rings should assess the most appropriate production technology for its specific range of products. Steel strip blanking versus steel wire blanking is a prime example as it could influence the final performance of the retaining ring. It is evident that small sizes can’t be blanked from wire. The question is what about larger sizes, where both technologies can be applied?
