NORD introduces size 14 industrial gear units with 190kNm output torque

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has extended its industrial gear unit range by adding a new size with 190kNm output torque. The series now comprises nine sizes and covers torques from 25 to 250kNm. The addition of the size 14 units allows for configurations tailored more precisely to individual applications.

Featuring a single-piece UNICASE housing, they are said to 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.

The units 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 up to 30,000:1 with an auxiliary primary stage.

NORD industrial gear units can be mounted on any of their six sides and can be configured for a 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.
