MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units provide high output torques from 132,800 lb-in to 2,495,900 lb-in and provide up to 8,075 HP. Making them perfect for use in heavy duty applications, such as bucket elevators, agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums, or crushers.
Available in 11 sizes, MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units are equipped with high quality, low friction bearings and a torsionally rigid one-piece UNICASE™ housing to ensure excellent load capacity, long service life, and quiet operation. Extensive input options and mounting designs ensure optimal application versatility. MAXXDRIVE also have the option of adding a grain endurance package which features a combination of several protective measures that ensure a long operation life for the unit.
The MAXXDRIVE XT right-angle industrial gear unit is available in seven sizes with a torque range of 132,800 to 663,800 lb-in and offers the grain industry a symmetrical designed gearbox for mirror image installations, which drastically reduces spare parts costs and downtime.
The optimized housing geometry achieves maximum thermal ratings and effective fan cooling through an enhanced fan design and air flow. Like all NORD industrial gear units, all bearing and sealing surfaces in the MAXXDRIVE XT are machined in a single process; promoting quiet operation and long service life.
The 90.1 Helical Bevel gearboxes feature cast iron UNICASE™ housing, infinite life gearing, high axial and radial load capacity, minimum backlash, and efficient performance. Available in 11 sizes with a torque range of up to 442,5000 lb-in, these efficient, versatile units are adaptable to countless applications. Heavy duty bearing and spread bearing/flange mount designs provide increased load capacity and extended service life.
NORD’s line of synchronous and asynchronous motors conform to international energy guidelines and certifications – from standard IE1 up to the ultra-premium efficient IE5+. They are designed to perform efficiently and safely in harsh conditions, where extremely heavy loads have to be moved, or where there is a dust or gas explosion hazard.
Electric motors from NORD are manufactured in-house for supply to all major markets throughout the world. This ensures a high level of independence from external suppliers and provides our customers with the decisive advantage of short, dependable lead times.
NORD motors are also highly customizable. Available options include, but are not limited to:
Available in 10 sizes, the NORD Screw Conveyor Package with a helical-bevel design offers a cost-effective drive solution in a powerful, compact footprint. Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating the belted input systems provides for easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance.
NORD's Screw Conveyor Package with a CLINCHER™ parallel shaft gear unit is available in 12 sizes with closely stepped speed reduction ratios. These compact units eliminate the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards and are built for long service life and low maintenance, reducing overall operation costs.
