NORD Drivesystems recently added two new sizes to the MAXXDRIVE line. The new 133,000 & 177,000 in-lb nominal torque units are a well-received addition to the now 11-member family, complementing the larger units and promising even greater flexibility to system designers.
The entire MAXXDRIVE line is modular, and can be configured with a wide array of application-specific options including auxiliary drives, brakes, torque arms, backstops, swing bases, and even extruder flanges. The single-piece UNICASE housing provides mounting options on all six sides. All bearings and seals are contained within a single casting, with none of the housing splits and bolt-on carriers that plague competitive systems. Use of a one-piece UNICASE housing also provides high rigidity, more accurate shaft alignment and higher load-bearing capacity. The result is quiet operation, exceptional component life, and high reliability.
Gear ratios across the line are available in fine increments from 5.54:1 up to 30,000:1, with two, three, or four gear stages as well as an auxiliary reduction gear stage if needed. A number of sealing options are available, as well as a full complement of input and output shaft options. The units are available as either parallel shaft, or right-angle design using a spiral bevel input. Remote monitoring and temperature management solutions are also available.
NORD’s high performance gearboxes are suitable for demanding bulk material handling applications, cement and steel processing, wastewater management and many more. When combined with NORD’s industrial motors and drive electronics, MAXXDRIVE provides a complete solution for conveying systems, mixers, agitators, and similar heavy duty applications.
