Torq-Tenders™ From Zero-Max Offer a Pre-set Torque Value for Consistent Machine Operation

Jan 21, 2019

Plymouth, Minnesota: The Zero-Max Torq-Tender™ is an enclosed device with no external adjustment features. It has a pre-set torque value and once installed, cannot be changed. This feature safeguards against improper or unauthorized torque adjustments. 

Designed to avoid system damage, Zero-Max Torq-Tenders provide dependable overload protection. When a jam-up or excessive loading occurs, the built-in Torq-Tender will reliably and quickly release to prevent system damage. Proper torque setting ensures that the machine operates and reacts the way it was intended to operate. The Torq-Tender’s pre-set torque with no external adjustment feature, ensures the proper torque setting is maintained.
Additional Zero-Max Torq-Tender features include:
  • Standard Torq-Tenders are bi-directional. Torque values remain the same regardless
    of rotation.
  • If specified, the Torq-Tender can be configured at the factory to release at different torque ratings for different rotational directions.
  • When used as a coupling, the Torq-Tender fulfills two functions: (1) as a flexible shaft coupling and (2) as a mechanical torque limiter.
Designed with heat treated steel, Zero-Max Torq-Tenders are manufactured and assembled to operate in a wide variety of demanding industrial environments. Special designs and finishes are available to withstand the most adverse operating conditions.
