Torque limiters protect the drive and driven components from damage associated with torque overloads. In essence, they are used to shut down a machine and dissipate any rotational energy without causing damage to the machine. Often, systems operating at low speeds can develop a large quantity of torque. In the event of a malfunction, this excess torque can damage machine components such as gearing, couplings, and motor or drive shafts. A torque limiter will limit any damage to the machine or product by limiting the amount of torque to a preset level. We are Torque limiter experts – we provide torque limiters with a broad range of options that are ideal for light-duty to heavy-duty and specially engineered environments. We can even build and ship custom configurations for your specific application and industry.
