Production and operating costs can be significantly reduced by using conveyor belt systems with variable speed control. This is especially true in industries that rely heavily on the efficient movement of materials, such as material handling and processing plants.
Industrial applications all over the world rely on gearboxes to reduce motor speed, change rotational direction and change shaft orientation.
Gearboxes from NORD Drivesystems are suitable for many types of machinery and can be mounted with NEMA C-Face or IEC adapters or free input shaft designs, depending on the application needs. NORD gearboxes are also available as fully integrated gearmotors, which offer many advantages when compared to alternative options, such as:
In order to calculate gear ratio and speed, it is important to understand what a gear is. A gear is a toothed wheel that works together with another toothed wheel to alter the speed or direction of a driving mechanism (such as a motor).
Gears normally act in pairs; the driving gear and driven gear. The driving gear is the gear that is rotated by the prime mover, and the driven gear is the gear that is pushed (or driven) into rotation by the driving gear. A gear ratio is the relationship between the speed of the driving and driven gear in a gear set.
