Autogard the “Torque” of the Hillhead Exhibition

HillheadHillhead 2012 delivered as expected – 2 days of sun followed by a day of torrential rain!! 

Luckily the Rexnord stand was inside the main pavilion and as such, immune to the elements.

Hillhead takes place in a working quarry, covering some 140000 square metres. Visitor numbers over the three days in 2012 were 17,000+ (2010 saw 15,500) and many of those took the time to visit the Rexnord stand.

The Rexnord StandFeatured on the stand were Rexnord Large Roller and Conveyor Chains; Samiflex, Autoflex, Falk and Thomas couplings; BSD Backstops and Clutches;  along with Autogard Torque Limiters.

Whilst there was interest in all the products, Torque limiters and the large Samiflex Coupling on display created a lot of talking points, with customers in the quarrying, mining and construction sectors keen to explore mechanical protection solutions to prevent damage to their equipment, which operates in the harshest of environments. With the huge torques involved in some of the large equipment used in these industries, mechanical overload protection, in the form of a completely disengaging torque limiter, can prevent a costly and time consuming repair before the damage occurs.

Ian Loveday: Sales Manager at the Rexnord StandMaintenance engineers were also quick to see the benefits of the wrap style insert of the Samiflex coupling in terms of reduced maintenance time and many were surprised that the size range goes up to 20, 000 nm.

Autogard on display at Hillhead 2012

On the 19th – 21st June 2012, Autogard Torque Limiters will form part of the complete Power Transmission Solution package on display on the Rexnord stand at the Hillhead Exhibition, Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, Derbyshire.

Hillhead focuses on the Aggregate, Construction and Recycling industries. Autogard’s robust mechanical Torque Limiters are the ideal choice for these industries when they need to protect their equipment, particularly in harsh, low speed, high torque environments. Take a look at the Application section of the Autogard web site for more details of how and where torque limiters provide solutions in these industries.

The Rexnord stand will also feature Transmission and Conveyor Chain, Power Transmission Couplings, Backstops and Freewheels, and Rexnord Conveying Equipment from the Rexnord Europe portfolio. Visit for further information on these products.

We look forward to seeing you on the stand in June.

The stand location is P124, in the Main Pavillion, so you are assured of a refuge from the Sun(hopefully) or the Rain (more likely!).
