In industrial applications, the increase of, automation in the manufacturing processes is becoming a strict requirement; performances are constantly improving Ever the increase of precision utilizing servo systems results in the increase of higher speeds.
Moreover, in order to improve the production capacity it is also important the increase of stiffness of the systems thus the increase of the resistance to global dynamic loads.
The torque overload generated by human error, mechanical malfunction or other causes is, however, unpredictable and if not intercepted can damage to the machine and, consequently, cause downtimes which can be long and, therefore, expensive.
SAFEMAX® Torque Limiters prevent these problems from happening through instant disengagement of the motor side from the driven side in case of torque overload, thus eliminating the risk of expensive downtimes. In addition, our torque limiters, being torsionally rigid and backlash free, allow a rapid and accurate resumption of machine operations once the cause of the overload has been eliminated.
