Manheim, PA – Fenner Drives, a global leader in problem-solving products for conveying and power transmission applications, announced the launch of RotoShield Gearbox Torque Limiters. RotoShield GTL stops damage from costly torque overloads before it occurs by instantly disengaging components and automatically resets with 360° rotation. The unique compact design mounts directly to the motor and gearbox for easy installation with no additional design or machining required.

RotoShield is designed to mount between your motor and high efficiency reducer. RotoShield GTL allows for easy design and installation with a more compact design at a more economical price point than torque limiters installed on the output of the reducer.

RotoShield is designed to bring cost-savings to a variety of industrial applications, such as: food & beverage, packaging, wastewater treatment, and shredders/recycling.
