NORD Drivesystems offers a broad
range of trusted gear units for various industries and applications. Industrial
gears from NORD feature a UNICASE housing for robust and reliable performance
in heavy duty applications.
Components and units required
for heavy duty industrial applications are exposed to harsh environments and
need to be robust to ensure reliability and a long service life. Key
requirements also include extremely high output torques, cost effectiveness and
quiet running. Companies looking for an industrial gear drive to best match their
heavy duty applications are best served by trusted brands that truly understand
the environment and the exact application, helping avoid any costly downtime in
The new MAXXDRIVE is the latest industrial
gear unit from NORD Drivesystems designed to provide high output torques from
15,000 Nm to 250,000 Nm. MAXXDRIVE is recommended for use in applications such
as agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums or crushers.
According to NORD Drivesystems Managing
Director Martin Broglia, downtime in heavy duty industries is extremely costly –
an issue addressed by NORD through their industrial gear units available as
helical gear units or bevel gear units.
Martin elaborates that NORD is an
industrial gear unit manufacturer with the world’s largest industrial gear
UNICASE housing, specifically designed to accommodate large roller bearings and
guarantee a longer service life.
NORD’s industrial gear units meet
the key requirements of flexibility, durability and long service life. Key
features include optimised geometries for excellent load capacity, low noise
and a long service life; robust design thanks to high quality, low friction
bearings; high durability from the UNICASE housing; and ability to be paired
with any of NORD’s electric motors, increasing flexibility.
NORD MAXXDRIVE helical gear units
The MAXXDRIVE helical gear unit
provides power from 1.5kW to 4000kW and is available in 11 sizes. The gear unit
is supplied with various output shafts to ensure optimum connection for any
application, and can be supplied with double or triple input shafts, IEC input
flanges for direct connection of electric motors, output flanges and a range of
suitable torque arms.
The bevel unit in the MAXXDRIVE
range can withstand fluctuating ambient conditions thanks to a temperature
management system, allowing its use under extreme conditions. Key features also
include multiple cooling and heating options; easily accessible back stops fitted
for quick and simple changes to the direction of rotation ensuring maximum
flexibility; Taconite sealing on the input and output shafts guaranteeing a
robust shield against dusty or wet environments; and accessible greasing points
ensuring efficient maintenance.
