Hard Disk Drive
RENCOL® Tolerance Rings are ideal precision components within a hard disk drive, mounting the bearing assembly or bearing cartridge into the drive efficiently and at a cost-effective price. The customisable components significantly improve resonance and torque ripple performance while providing the ideal balance between high performance and efficient assembly. Constructed from premium grade stainless steel, RENCOL® Tolerance Ring solutions are used in almost 60% of the world's 2.5" and 3.5" hard disk drives.
The rings come with long life built in, solving the problem of wear and damage by staying in place for the life of the drive and enabling optimum performance. That means consumers can be sure they are buying a more reliable hard disk drive at a competitive price.
