Industrial gears with the world’s largest UNICASE housing

Every application has its own unique requirements and this is most evident in the heavy-duty industry. Components and units required for heavy-duty applications are exposed to harsh environments and need to be robust to ensure a long service life and reliability.

In addition, high output torques, cost effectiveness and quiet running are also key prerequisites for companies operating within these environments.

Nord Maxxdrive is an industrial gear unit provides high output torques from 15,000 Nm to 250,000 Nm and is suitable for applications such as agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums or crushers.

“Downtime in heavy-duty industries is extremely costly,“ said Martin Broglia, MD of Nord Drivesystems. “Over the years, Nord has continuously seen success with its industrial gear units – available as helical gear units or bevel gear units,”

“In addition, NORD is the industrial gear unit manufacturer with the world’s largest industrial gear UNICASE housing. These were specifically designed to accommodate large roller bearings and to guarantee a longer service-life.’’

The Maxxdrive helical gear units provide power from 1.5kW to 4000kW and is available in 11 sizes. These are supplied with various output shafts to ensure optimum connection for any application. In addition, they can also be supplied with double or tripple 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 be used under very extreme conditions as they can withstand fluctuating ambient conditions thanks to a temperature management system. Various cooling and heating options are available and for maximum flexibility, the gear units are fitted with easily accessible back stops for quick and simple changes to the direction of rotation. Taconite sealing on the input and output shafts guarantees a robust sheild against dusty or wet environments and accessible greasing points ensure maintenance can be undertaken efficiently.

Nord’s development has also extended into engineered baseplates where mounting of fluid couplings, disc brakes, auxiliary drives, oil coolers and other accessories can be connected, tested and delivered as a full package solution for the end user.
