May 25, 2016 – NORD DRIVESYSTEMS extended their industrial gear unit range by adding a new size with 190 kNm output torque. The series now comprises nine sizes and covers torques from 25 kNm to 250 kNm. The addition of the new size 14 units allows for configurations tailored more precisely to individual applications.
Featuring a single-piece UNICASE housing as is standard for all NORD gear units, they achieve a longer bearing life than gear casings manufactured from jointed parts and ensure efficient power transmission and high tolerance for load peaks and jolts. They can be assembled as two or three-stage helical inline or helical bevel gearboxes with nominal transmission ratios from 7.1:1 to 400:1, or even up to 30,000:1 with an auxiliary primary stage. The input and output direction can be freely selected.
NORD industrial gear units can be mounted on any of the six sides. The manufacturer configures industrial geared motors for a diverse range of uses from steel works to process plants. Application-specific features and options include reinforced bearings and shafts, extra-large bearing distance, extended output shafts, and drywell designs with an additional oil drip disc and a leakage oil display or oil sensor. Disc and drum brakes, dual-gear setups, auxiliary motors, IEC motor adapters, turbo couplings, axial fans, motor swing bases, torque limiting backstops, and cooling and heating systems are available as well.
