If you need a dependable, high performance gearbox able to handle the most demanding bulk material handling applications, cement and steel processing, wastewater management and many more, look no further than the MAXXDRIVETM system, a flexible yet durable high-torque series of industrial gearboxes from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS. 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, offering output torques up to 2,196,000 in-lb.
The good news? The already successful gear drive family has just become a little bigger. 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—including the two newcomers—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.
