At the 2017 Hannover Messe exhibition, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will present two new gearboxes for nominal torques of 15 and 20 kNm. With these latest additions to the line-up, the series now comprises 11 gearbox sizes that deliver output torques up to 250 kNm. Designated major application fields for these units include the cement industry and bulk handling in general. Combining industrial gear units with motors and drive electronics, NORD configures complete drive systems for heavy-duty operation in slat conveyor systems, chain scrapers, agitators and rotary furnaces. The model range offers a particularly great variety of configuration options for application-specific drive solutions. The modular system includes dual-gear setups, auxiliary drives, brakes, torque arms, backstops and swing bases. In addition, there is a variety of sealing options and solutions for temperature management and monitoring. The gear units can be mounted on all six sides. Gear ratios can be configured in fine increments from 5.54 : 1 to over 30 000 : 1 – with two, three, or four gear stages, and with an auxiliary primary gear stage if so required. All NORD industrial gear units feature a single-piece housing. This ensures very high power density, compact dimensions, high overload capacities and excellent longevity.
