19 Dec Autogard torque limiters come through in the clutch
When it comes to predicting a potential failure or breakdown on a piece of equipment, Motion Australia’s Steve Hittmann says that torque limiters play an important role in addressing these challenges.
“Torque is the measure of force that causes rotational motion and importantly, it takes into consideration the angle and the magnitude under which said force can be applied,” he explains. “Therefore, in the event that a mechanism encounters unexpected force that overloads its capacity and exceeds the limitations of its original design, a torque limiter serves as a barrier between unexpected force and machine overload. This prevents damage to the machine, downtime on production, and most importantly, injury to the machine operator.”
