Bevel footplate offers easy exchange of industry standard worm units

Typical right angle worm reducers range in efficiency from 40%-90% depending on size, ratio and output speed. The increased efficiency of NORD’s 2-stage bevels can result in as much as a 30% energy savings. It is easy to replace an industry standard worm unit with the highly efficient and cost effective NORD SK92.1 or SK93.1 helical-bevel by ordering NORD’s industry interchange footplate and universal shaft. The footplate is available with either threaded or through holes and has an optional extended design to best suite all standard worm mounting situations. The universal shaft can be used on either the A side or B side and is dimensionally the same as industry standard worms. When compared to single worm units on the market, NORD’s 2-stage bevel drives have several other advantages such as a wide range of available ratios, a UNICASE™, quiet, leak-free housing design, and wear-free infinite life gearing. As energy costs continue to rise and natural resources become scarcer, consider NORD in your next energy efficient solution.
