NORD DRIVESYSTEMS (Waunakee, WI) announced MAXXDRIVE and MAXXDRIVE XT, industrial gear units designed to be the ideal solution for heavy duty applications.

They offer configurable, complete solutions that are specifically tailored to application needs with:

  • 11 case size options.
  • A wide range of components and add-ons.
  • The ability to be configured with 2, 3 or 4 gear stages.

These gear units provide the necessary power in heavy duty applications such as:

  • Conveyor belt systems
  • Mixers
  • Agitators
  • Crushers
  • Bucket elevators

All MAXXDRIVE housings are optimized for strength, rigidity and high axial and radial load capacities to withstand the tough environments and loads they are often put under during operation.

The MAXXDRIVE XT design is further enhanced with a larger surface area by way of innovative cooling fin geometry. This allows for:

  • Increased heat dissipation efficiency.
  • Maximized thermal ratings.
  • Elimination of the need for auxiliary cooling systems.

MAXXDRIVE units also feature large roller bearings that:

  • Increase load capacity.
  • Reduce friction.
  • Provide a long service life for components. 

MAXXDRIVEs have a wide range of standard configuration options and extensive input, foot, flange, and shaft mounting options, as well as NEMA and IEC adapter compatibility.

The MAXXDRIVE XT also offers a symmetrical, mirror-image design that reduces the number of replacement gear units that need to be stocked. Various cooling and heating options provide the drives with flexible temperature management that works to extend lubricant life and efficiency. 

MAXXDRIVE units also offer a wide range of options including: 

  • A fixing element kit
  • Protective cover
  • Torque support
  • Monitoring sensors for temperature, vibration, speed and oil level
  • Oil heater or cooler

Additionally, these units can also be outfitted with NORD’s Endurance Package, which adds additional performance and safety features to further protect operators, transported materials, and gear unit components.
