RENCOL® HV ring with flanged end (a protruding rim that surrounds the circumference of the material) used for axial control or limiter, for example in steering column collapse mechanisms.
The Tolerance Ring allows a simple consistent joint of cylindrical parts using dissimilar materials without the complications and cost of adhesive, secondary machining operations or machined details, such as splines or threads. The Tolerance Ring sits between the two components resulting in an engineered fastening.
In an axial slip application, the Tolerance Ring is used to join two components which are required to move in relation to each other. The level of axial slip force is controlled by the design characteristics of the Tolerance Ring, which can be designed to either offer smooth consistent axial slip forces or to slip at a pre-determined shock force.
