NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is a world leader in large industrial gear technology. NORD recently supplied the world's largest gearbox with a one-piece housing for a 1.25 mile long mining conveyor in Morocco. The SK15407 MAXXDRIVE™ is mounted on a swing base with a 600 HP motor. The gearbox has a torque rating of 2,000,000 lb-in and moves loads of several hundred tons. NORD's UNICASE™ housing prevents leaks and provides a compact design with high radial and axial load capacity. The configuration includes an electric drum brake and sheet metal safety panels. The safety panels protect operators from moving parts while simultaneously directing cool air towards the gearbox in order to optimize the unit's working temperature. The solution achieves both high work safety and reliable operation.
