Nord extends product range of single-stage helical gear units
Line provides flexible solutions for high-speed drive applications
NORD Gear Corp. USA announced an extension to its line of single-stage helical gear units with three new sizes of its gear units: SK 871.1, SK 971.1 and SK 1071.1, the three largest single-stage NORDBLOC gear units, the company says. The new products have a power range of 30 to 60 horsepower (hp), a torque range of 3,540 to 8,850 pound-in and a ratio range of 1.41 to 8.09:1. With the addition of the three new gear units, the company’s portfolio features eight sizes, 1.07 to 14:1 gear ratios and 221 to 8,850 pound-in torque, it adds. In addition to offering multiple output shaft and mounting options, the helical gear units feature durable UNICASE cast iron housing and optimized bearings, which can handle large axial and radial forces suited for pumps, mixers, conveyors and industrial fans. Mounted by foot, flange or a combination of both, and featuring solid shafts with metric or imperial extensions, the line provides customizable, flexible solutions for most high-speed drive applications within the food and beverage industries. Additionally, the new line will help the company capture greater market share by providing a wider selection of configurations at a lower cost, it says.
