TORQUE

         LIMITERS

These devices reliably detect overloads and isolate input and output by removing the drive key from the groove. Once the overload is resolved, operation can continue automatically at the same torque from the same indexing position. Torque is set using a built-in torque spring, so there is no troublesome fine-tuning.

TORQUE LIMITERS

Overload protection devices instantly cut off input and output when an overload occurs, protecting machinery. Overloads are detected accurately and the drive key removed from the groove to cut off input and output. Once the overload is resolved, operation can continue automatically at the same torque from the same indexing position. Torque is set using a built-in torque spring, so there is no troublesome fine-tuning. Torque limiters also serve as flexible couplings, and can be used either                     by butting two shafts together or by wrapping. Since power is

                                 transmitted by a drive key, they can be used safely

                                                                   even in oil.
