In the majority of the applications Mach III encounters our product connects to a round, keyed shaft. This application, however, connects two square shafts. Used on military equipment that is exposed to the elements, all of the metal components are stainless steel. The torque limiter portion (top photo) fits a 1.0 Inch Square, the coupling portion (bottom photo) fits a 0.75 Inch Square. The torque limiter protects the driven shaft by slipping if the factory torque setting of 1,800 pound inches is exceeded.
If your design includes square or other atypical shafting, contact Mach III to explore a custom design solution. All Mach III products are made in the USA and lead times for custom designs average only one week longer than for similar sized catalog products.
