Different types of industrial applications rely on gearboxes (also referred to as reducers, gear reducers, speed reducers, gear drives or gearmotors) to reduce motor speed, change rotational direction and change shaft orientation (such as right angle, parallel or inline shaft gearboxes). NORD Drivesystems offers a number of distinct gearboxes specifically configured for varying needs.
Our gearboxes are suitable to many types of machinery and can be mounted to motors with a NEMA C-Face adapter, IEC or free input shaft designs, depending on the application need. NORD gearboxes are also available as fully integrated gearmotors, which offer the advantages of reduced materials costs, compact design, increased reliability and quieter operating levels. These integrated gearmotors are a far safer and more efficient, and durable solution compared to externally mounted speed reducer systems that require belts, chains or other open transmission devices.
A worm gear's composition of a screw (worm) and gear wheel allow for speed control and can achieve high torque. The applications for worm gear sets include use in gates, conveyors, lifts and elevators.
Read more about the industrial and mechanical applications for worm gears, helical-bevel gears and other gearboxes.
For design engineers and equipment manufacturers, choosing between worm gears vs. bevel gears can make a huge impact on efficiency and operating cost. In this article, we'll explore the key benefits of worm and bevel gears to help you determine which may work best for your application.
