Torque Limiter

Time to Read: 2m 5s

A torque limiter is a mechanical device that isolates the driving from the driven elements to protect mechanical equipment from damage due to overload. The torque limiter limits the torque applied either through slippage or by uncoupling the load entirely. Torque overloads are commonly caused by material jams or operator error and can cause costly downtime in high automation environments.
