NORD Drivesystems will spotlight its newest range of compact NORD Industrial Gear Units (IGU) on Stand 1711 at AIMEX.
On show will be one of four new gear case sizes with an output torque range between 25.3 kNm and 51.3 kNm.
Craig Robinson, engineering manager and industrial gear unit product manager for NORD Drivesystems Australia, said a larger NORD Industrial Gear Unit mounted on a base plate would also be on display.
“The display assembly includes a NORD SK13407 Industrial Gear Unit complete with an integral backstop, brake disc coupling and caliper hydraulic disc brake assembly and driven by a 400 kW electric motor. The NORD IGU assembly on display produces continuous torque of 104 kNm, with 208 kNm peak torque, and features a bearing life of over 72,000 hours based on the installed power of 400kW.
“The specification of this complete drive assembly is based on a braked belt conveyor which is a popular specification for many mining applications.”
Also at AIMEX, NORD Drivesystems will feature helical geared motors, electrical motors and frequency inverters, including cabinet-mounted and de-centralised.
NORD Drivesystems Australia was established in 2009 as a fully owned subsidiary of Getriebebau NORD GmbH & Co.KG of Germany, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of helical geared motors.
NORD released its first Unicase gearbox design in 1981, a move Robinson said had revolutionised modern geared motor standards with the specification continuing to this day.
