The LPB Torque limiter of balls is a safety device which is used to protect the mechanical system from overloading damage.
When the load exerted on the ball is greater than the preset value, the ball and the sleeve will slide relative to each other, and the output torque will decrease rapidly, thereby protecting the mechanical equipment.
This kind of torque limiter consists of a ball, a sleeve, a spring and a ball seat, and the ball is always in contact with the inner wall of the sleeve.
When the input torque is less than the set torque, the ball is pressed by the spring to rotate with the sleeve, and the output torque is equal to the input torque.
When the input torque is greater than the set torque, the ball is pressed by the load to rotate relative to the sleeve, and the gap between the two is increased.
At this time, the friction between the ball and the sleeve is small, and the output torque is small, so it can be used as a torque limiter.
Once the problem is detected and solved, when starting the movement, The LPB Torque limiter of balls allows us to recover the mechanical synchronism for which it is built, normally it is 360º, other configurations, on request.
