At Hannover Messe 2011, Nord Drivesystems will present performance-optimised two-stage helical bevel gear units, designed so that cleaning liquids can easily wash off in all installation positions.

For that purpose, all external surfaces have been designed with wide radii and no indentations or dead spaces.

The gearboxes are suitable for use in conveyor technology and in the food industry.

Further applications include hoists, storage facilities and overhead conveyor systems.

As the installation measurements remain essentially the same, users can easily exchange old gear units for the new models.

Additionally, the new models have greater power reserves than their predecessors, thus allowing for the use of smaller sizes in some applications.

They are designed for use with Nords’ complete range of motors, allowing customers to flexibly configure drive systems.

The series, consisting of models in five different sizes, with torques ranging from 90 to 660Nm, is due on the market at the end of 2011.

All units feature a high-strength die-cast aluminium gear case that is designed according to the unicase principle.

Because the gear case requires neither an inspection cover nor a screw-on input cover, the units are especially small and lightweight.

This facilitates handling and helps reduce energy consumption, particularly in applications where drives are moved.

According to Nord, the gearboxes provide maximum operational safety, high output torques, high resistance to axial and radial loads and low-noise operation.

The company also states that they require minimal maintenance and have a long service life.
