Torque Limiter - Overload Clutch

The Sankyo torque limiter is a safety device designed to protect mechanical equipment from overloads. When an excessive torque load occurs, the torque limiter trips or, shuts off the transmission of torque to protect the machine. Sankyo’s design follows the separation principle, commonly regarded as the most reliable principle available. The tripping torque mechanism is based on the mechanical transmission of torque formed by a ball and a ball pocket, or roller and roller pocket combination. This mechanism ensures accurate torque shut-off and easy trip-point adjustment without degrading performance of the equipment to which it is installed. The torque limiter device resets to its original location with minimal loss in accuracy.
