U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission recently launched the Torque Limiter Sprocket, a complete assembly providing both the Torque Limiter and sprocket together as one unit. The company said it combines its 100-plus years of engineering and manufacturing excellence with its high-quality sprockets and overload protection devices to create a single device that provides a powerful and long-lasting torque limiting solution.
Up to now, the method for purchasing torque-limiting devices required end-users to assemble the limiting device, springs, bushings and sprocket by themselves. Tsubaki now offers all these components preassembled and bored-to-order in U.S. Tsubaki’s facility in Wheeling, Illinois. End-users can now simply install the fully assembled unit to the shaft, set the torque limit, and move forward with operation.
