NORD Drivesystems showcased their latest series of slim two-stage helical bevel gearboxes with output torques up to 50 Nm at the Drives & Controls exhibition held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK earlier this year.

The highly efficient helical bevel type units complement NORD’s line-up of worm gearboxes already available for small powers. Featuring a robust design with a ‘Unicase’ gear housing and large dimensioned bearings, the gear units can withstand high radial or axial loads acting on the output shaft. Available for gear ratios from 3.58 to 61.88, the new gear units add a new size to the existing series that now comprises of six sizes with output torques up to 660 Nm.

The two-stage helical bevel gearboxes are supplied with hollow and solid shafts, single or double shafts for foot or flange mounting, and in open or enclosed designs. The very high power density, standard across all versions, ensures robust reliability and easy handling. The motors, drive electronics, accessories, gaskets and lubricants can all be custom-configured to suit the demands of diverse industries. For instance, the units can be supplied with nsd tupH heavy-duty corrosion-protection surface treatment for the aluminium housings, making them suitable for washdown applications.

NORD Drivesystems also showcased a large fully functional conveyor technology demonstration rig that brought together a selection of their geared motors and decentralised frequency inverters and starters, all well proven for materials handling applications in packaging machinery and logistics industries.

NORD additionally demonstrated further decentralised capability through two smart control solutions for synchronous and asynchronous motors utilising SK 200E series frequency inverters complete with PLC functionality.
