Leslie Langnau, Managing Editor for Design World interviews Andrew Lechner about R+W America’s new torque limiter design. Andrew describes the importance of both mass and inertia in their torque limiters and how the load inertia effects mechanical components in their customer’s designs. Additionally, as customers develop more mobile and portable devices, precise motion control is required and can be delivered through the decreased mass available in the new design. R+W implemented two main design changes in their torque limiter. Listen to the podcast to learn more about how both mass and inertia have been reduced by 50%.
