The trend in industry is to design and incorporate more automation into production processes.
Machines are becoming faster, more precise and rigid, to withstand the dynamic loads necessary to increase capacity and productivity.
Torque overloads caused by material jams, operator error, or a whole range of unforeseen reasons pose a signi?cant threat to profits due to machine or product damage, and lost production.
To manage this problem Nexen’s patented MTL mechanical torque limiter isolates the driving from the driven elements within a matter of milliseconds, once the torque reaches a preset overload value.
After the problem is cleared the torque limiter is reset and production continues.
The MTL offers these features:
Easily adjustable, in place, graduated torque setting
Single, and multi-position options
Auto reset, manual reset, and load holding options
Compact design minimises shaft length requirements and allows smaller sprockets and pulleys
Double bearing support of pulley or sprocket Keyed straight bore, or keyless compression bushing options
Pulley, sprocket, elastomer and bellows coupling options
Disengages in milliseconds
Low/No residual friction when disengaged Sealed and corrosion resistant options available
Low inertia Contactless overload sensor available
This set of features makes Nexen’s MTL a class leader.
