WAUNKEE, WISCONSIN, USA – NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has added the MAXXDRIVE XT series to its line of industrial gearboxes designed for the most demanding requirements.
The MAXXDRIVE range includes industrial parallel and right angle gearboxes with high output torques of 132,800 2301200 lb-in, ratios of 5.54 to 30,000: 1 and 2.5 to 8075 HP in 11 sizes. In addition to this proven standard series, NORD also offers the new MAXXDRIVE XT series; Right angle reducers with thermally optimized housings, output torques from 132,800 to 663,800 lb-in, ratios 6.14 to 22.91: 1 and 30 to 2825 HP in seven sizes.
With a comprehensive selection of accessories and options, MAXXDRIVE’s modular system allows NORD to perfectly match drive systems to heavy duty applications such as conveyors, mixers, agitators or anywhere low speed with high high power is needed.
MAXXDRIVE and MAXXDRIVE XT are designed and classified according to international standards. Their UNICASE housings optimize strength to weight ratio, reduce leakage paths, have higher rigidity and allow multiple mounting surfaces. The one-piece housing also ensures that no sealing surface is subjected to torque.
MAXXDRIVE units are built with high quality components, including case-hardened and hard-finish gears, C4, 42 CrMo4 or 18 CrNiMo7-6 steels, and a proprietary roller bearing system for quiet operation and long life. longer life.
They also have high precision axis alignment, which allows for smoother operation and reduced maintenance over time. In addition, all bearing and sealing surfaces are machined in one process, further promoting low noise and longevity.
Because MAXXDRIVE gearboxes are designed based on a modular concept, they allow a wide range of configuration and mounting options from NORD’s standard offering while being easily adaptable for custom drive applications.
One of the most common applications of MAXXDRIVE is heavy duty belt conveyor drives including electric motor, coupling solution and industrial gearbox with axial fan. The main objective is to dissipate heat quickly and efficiently, allowing worry-free operation even in extreme environments. MAXXDRIVE XT industrial gearboxes take this concept even further with their thermally optimized housings.
Other typical applications of these powerful drive units include the mixing and agitation processes. By equipping the heavy-torque MAXXDRIVE industrial gearbox with reinforced bearing and flange versions (VL2 / KL2 -VL6 / KL6), the drive can be adjusted to maximize its efficiency with varying load sizes.
