Designers and manufacturers of Torque Limiters since 1977
Howdon Power Transmission are a specialist engineering firm with clients all over the world. We have been involved in the design and manufacture of torque limiters for over 40 years.
We invented the revolutionary Wedgegard® Shearpin Torque Limiter in 1977 to address demand for a simple solution to torque overload protection. A torque limiter is a device that protects mechanical equipment, such as conveyors and pumps, from damage by jamming or overload.
We also manufacture and supply Couplings, Brakes and Thrusters.
