Available in ball designs, these precision torque limiters can connect to the shaft with locking bushes achieving a total absence of backlash. Very high sensitivity is available in negative spring versions. Now available in stainless steel for food and arduous environments.
Torque range 1 to 750Nm.
Ball torque limiters are sensitive and allow an electrical signal on overload. Roller models achieve higher torques and synchronise input to output. Comprehensive mounting options are available.
Torque range 2.5 to 12000Nm.
Low cost ball type torque limiter with platewheel. EDF models synchronise input and output, are maintenance free, and allow an electrical signal of overload.
Torque range 7.5 to 1450Nm.
Simple and inexpensive torque limiters that work by springs pressing friction material onto a platewheel. The slipping torques are steplessly adjustable and they continue to deliver torque during and after an overload. At low speeds they can be used as slip clutches. Torque range 1 to 23000Nm.
Pneumatic models allow remote adjustment of the release torque and multi-
Torque range 3 to 30000 Nm
Axial force torque limiters can be used to protect from linear overloads, for example on gearbox torque arms. They work in both tension and compression and can be supplied in customised assemblies.
Force range 30 to 7000N.
Techdrives torque limiters are manufactured by ComInTec -
Torque limiters prevent machine damage and costly downtime in cases where an accidental overload occurs. They restrict the maximum load from the drive and can act as a clutch to disconnect the drive. In many cases it is useful to have a switch signal to initiate an alarm and stop the drive. Different models give different action on overload and suit varied varied mounting configurations.
