Furthermore, it is important to increase the rigidity of systems and thus their resistance to global dynamic loads in order to improve production capacity. Torque overload caused by human error, mechanical failure, or other reasons, if left uncontrolled and unpredictable, can damage the machinery and result in long and therefore costly downtime.
SAFEMAX® Torque Limiting Couplings prevent these issues by instantly separating the motor side from the driven side in case of torque overload, thereby eliminating the risk of expensive downtime. In addition, our torsionally stiff and backlash-free torque limiters allow for quick and accurate restarting of machine operations once the cause of overload has been eliminated.
- Low inertia moment
