Nord also developed MAXXDRIVE ® The XD series is particularly suitable for the application of lifting gearboxes in cranes. Due to the extension of the center distance of the gear unit, it further optimizes the cost and customized dimensions of the lifting drive device in crane applications. Its installation space can be better utilized, and the weight of the driving device can be reduced by up to 60%.
02. Durable and sturdy UNICASE integrated molding box
Nord's gearboxes are designed with sturdy and durable UNICASE integrated casing, which can perform excellently in heavy loads and harsh environments. They can be processed in just one process. Therefore, all bearing seats are manufactured to high-precision standards and accurately aligned with each other. This reduces the error rate and extends the service life of the gear unit. It integrates the bearing points into a bearing seat, so the sealing surface no longer bears torque and radial loads.
03. More heavy-duty applications
Nord also provides powerful and reliable drive systems for other heavy-duty applications, such as cranes, positioning devices, and lifting platforms for metal or paper material handling and container storage systems.
Nord's industry experts can tailor crane drive solutions to meet the personalized needs of customers and provide professional support in design, debugging, and maintenance.
