Belt conveyor systems with variable speed control can help greatly reduce production and operating costs in any industry that relies heavily on efficiently moving materials. Food and beverage, packaging and material handling plants are especially well-situated to benefit from conveyor systems that fully utilize their material capacity.
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.
