Aydas Overload Clutches are mechanical safety devices which disconnect the output from the input when a preset limit value has been reached. Thus they protect against damage and stoppage times caused by overload.
Today Aydas offers a comprehensive range of positive and friction Overload Clutches.
Aydas provides the security you need.
Torque Limiters & Couplings
The Aydas Torque Limiter is a protective device that LIMITS TORQUE transmitted in a drive system by slipping when the torque demand exceed a preset value as a result of shock loads, overloads, or machine jams. It automatically re-engages when the overload torque has passed; no re-setting is required. It prevents machine damage and eliminates costly breakdown time.
The Torque Limiter utilises spring loaded friction surfaces for its operation; slip torque is preset by adjustment of the spring force. The Torque Limiter can be used with a sprocket, gear, sheave or flange as the centre member clamped between two friction facings. Offered complete with a range of specially machined platewheels and shaft to shaft couplings, with torque range 3 – 8540 Nm.
Simple Design . Easy Adjustment. Wide Torque Adjustment. Compact . Minimum Maintenance. Economical. Dependable. Durable
Aydas Overload Release Clutches are designed to provide accurate overload protection and automatically reset after the overload is cleared. The ball pocket design ensures the torque setting remains consistent over time. When the preset torque is exceeded, the detent ball pocket design trips out to disconnect the load. The load will free-spinning until the load torque is less than the torque limiting clutch preset torque.
Applications: The Overload Release Clutch is ideal for paper and packaging, printing, material handling, and food processing equipment.
Slip Clutch Friction Torque Limiter
Friction Torque Limiters and Couplings are designed to slip during a torque overload, while still transmitting the adjusted torque. They provide dependable solutions to the problems of torque control and overload protection in power transmission equipment.
Applications: Typically used on conveyor belt drives, lamination cutter drives, and robotics
