The LPC torque limiter integrated in the shaft consequently an extremely compact unit is achieved.
When the regulated torque is exceeded, there is a slip between the chain sprocket, the pulley, etc. and friction discs. The coil spring construction gives it great regulation sensitivity and allows it to absorb wear without noticeable modification of the regulated torque.
Other applications, such as a constant load element (retainers) or in simple winder shafts, are possible provided the heat generated is determined. Low speed mechanisms generally lend themselves to this type of inexpensive solution.
The possibility of using it as a sliding element is often more limited.
In autonomous machines or where continuous sliding may not be detected by the operator, it is convenient to install an external speed detector that will act on an alarm or directly on the motorization.
