December 22, 2017—Rexnord’s Autogard Torque Limiters lead the industry in overload protection with proven reliability, dependable expertise and a broad range of options that offer bi-directional protection, lower total cost of ownership, increased accuracy of torque limitation, and longer life at high speeds.

The most recent update to the Rexnord Autogard Torque Limiter range— the XG Series —provides 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.

“Rexnord Autogard Torque Limiters currently protect thousands of machines and production lines around the world,” says Rob Hucker, product manager of shaft management solutions. “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.”
