Nord Drivesystems expands gearbox range

Published by
World Cement,

Nord Drivesystems has expanded its latest series of slim two-stage helical bevel gearboxes, adding a new smaller unit for output torques up to 50 Nm. These type of units complement the line of worm gearboxes that are already available for small loads.

The gear units are highly resilient and can withstand significant force on the output shaft. The short-term overload tolerance is 275%, which leaves enough time for the motor protection to kick in, and allows the drive to start up again without service interruption.

The new units are available for gear ratios from 3.58 – 61.88. They add a new size to the existing series. In total six sizes are now available, with output torques of up to 660 Nm. Nord supplies the two-stage helical bevel gearboxes with hollow and solid shafts, single or double shafts, for foot or flange mounting and in open or closed designs. All versions feature a high power density, ensuring robust reliability and easy handling. The gearboxes support reverse operation.
