High efficiency gearboxes now offered with aluminium housings
Helical-bevel gearboxes provide a speed reducer function that can deliver power transmission efficiencies of over 95 percent for machinery builders. This can be up to twice that of the worm style gears that are commonly used, providing major savings in energy consumption. Nord Drivesystems has now lowered the entry costs to this advanced reducer technology with a new range of two-stage helical-bevel gearboxes in lightweight diecast aluminium housings.
In addition to energy savings, the highly efficient gearboxes allow automation builders to reduce costs by specifying smaller sizes of electric motor.
Nord's SK 92 series of helical-bevel gearboxes provide a right angled drive capability that can be configured to provide speed reduction ratios from 3:1 to 72:1, satisfying a very wide range of applications from baggage handling and conveying, to packaging and processing machinery. Five reducer sizes are available spanning a power range from 0.12 to 9.2kW.
