NORD MAXXDRIVE® Parallel Gear Units

Our MAXXDRIVE® Parallel Gear Units are used wherever high torques are required. For example, this was the case in a Moroccan phosphate mine: Here, phosphate ore with a weight of several hundred tons was to be transported for further processing via a two kilometre long conveyor belt.

For the belt drive, the customer decided on NORD MAXXDRIVE® Parallel Gear Units because these offer output torques of up to 282,000 Nm and powers of up to 6,000 kW. Thanks to their integration into the tried-and-tested UNICASE housing, the gear units also have high axial and radial load capacities. The Helical Gear Units can therefore easily withstand the harsh conditions of use on the conveyor belt.

What are the advantages of MAXXDRIVE® Parallel Gear Units?

  • Performance
    MAXXDRIVE® Industrial Gear Units with helical gears are ideal for heavy duty applications due to their high torques.
  • Service life
    Large roller bearings and precise alignment of shafts and gear wheels ensure a long service life for the gear units.
  • Flexible
    The helical gear units can be combined with all electric motors from the NORD range.
  • Installation-friendly
    Users have many options for the installation of output flanges (B14 flange as standard).

Our MAXXDRIVE® Industrial Helical Gear Units: Maximum flexibility
If you buy a NORD Parallel Gear Unit, you will have little difficulty in adapting it to your application. Rather, our gear units adapt themselves to your application.

To make installation as flexible as possible for our products, we offer you various shaft and flange options. Integration of the gear unit into your system is also facilitated by six mounting surfaces, which cover very different installation positions.

Due to their high performance and flexibility, NORD Helical Gear Units are ideally suited for use in many applications such as agitators, lifting gear, extruders, mixers, mills, drums or crushers.
