Rexnord launches new Autogard Torque Limiters

Published by
World Coal,


Rexnord have launched a new Autogard Torque Limiter range — the XG Series — which provides the best ever protection from unexpected torque spikes for extruders. Designed to disengage the driving motor from the extruder gearbox in the event of a process jam, the XG Series was developed based on over 30 years of industry experience in conjunction with leading machine builders and users.

Able to instantaneously separate damaging inertias over a pre-set level and featuring easy-to-adjust torque setting, drop-out options, simple manual disconnection and disengagement sensors, the XG Series is the mechanical fuse for extruders.

Product Manager of Shaft Management Solutions, Rob Hucker, said: “Rexnord Autogard Torque Limiters currently protect thousands of machines and production lines around the world.” “We’re particularly proud of our heritage in the extrusion industry and are very excited to be offering this new solution to improve extruder and compounding machine up-time even further.”
