Drives for all types of crane applications

From its comprehensive modular system, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers a wide range of drive systems for all types of crane applications.

Bargteheide, 2023-07-12

Crane tasks require special drives: Loads must be safely lifted, precisely positioned and gently set down, also with simultaneous movements of cranes and trolleys. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has the right drive solutions for:

  • Building cranes
  • Harbour cranes
  • Container cranes
  • Portal cranes

and many other types of cranes,

as well as for lifting gear, positioning units and lifting tables as used with material handling of metals or paper, and in container storage systems.

Drive components from a single source

The flexible NORD modular system offers a wide range of gear units, industrial gear units, electric motors and drive electronics that can be combined for optimum drive solutions for different requirements of crane applications.

The MAXXDRIVE® industrial gear units with output torques of up to 282,000 Nm are suitable for large lifting gear with heavy loads. For smaller lifting gear, the NORD geared motor portfolio comprising parallel shaft, bevel or helical geared motors provides the perfect drive solution.

Energy efficiency and precise positioning

Particularly for lifting gear applications in cranes, NORD developed the MAXXDRIVE® XD series. With its extended centre distance, they provide for a space-saving drive geometry and help to reduce the weight of the drive by up to 60 percent.

The NORD drive solutions allow for energy efficiency and precise positioning, and are easy to service and maintain. All NORD gear units have been constructed as particularly robust UNICASE gear units which pays off in case of heavy loads and in harsh environmental conditions.
