Gearboxs are designed to handle the most demanding bulk material handling applications, cement and steel processing, wastewater management and more.
NORD recently added two new sizes to the MAXXDRIVE line; the 133,000 & 177,000 in-lb nominal torque units.
The entire MAXXDRIVE line is modular and can be configured with a wide array of application-specific options including auxiliary drives, brakes, torque arms, backstops, swing bases, and even extruder flanges. The single-piece UNICASE housing provides mounting options on all six sides. All bearings and seals are contained within a single casting, with none of the housing splits and bolt-on carriers that plague competitive systems. Use of a one-piece UNICASE housing also provides high rigidity, more accurate shaft alignment and higher load-bearing capacity. The result is quiet operation, exceptional component life, and high reliability.
Gear ratios across the line are available in fine increments from 5.54:1 up to 30,000:1, with two, three, or four gear stages as well as an auxiliary reduction gear stage if needed. A number of sealing options are available, as well as a full complement of input and output shaft options. The units are available as either parallel shaft, or right-angle design using a spiral bevel input. Remote monitoring and temperature management solutions are also available.
