NORD Offers Extruder Flange Options for Maxxdrive
February 13, 2020
Manufacturers in the plastics and rubber processing industries appreciate the long service life, low maintenance, and energy efficiency of NORD´s drive solutions
Extrusion has established itself as one of the most important manufacturing techniques in the production and processing of rubber and thermoplastics. To provide these industries with the high output torque their heavy-duty applications demand, NORD Gear Corporation manufactures several extruder flanges for its Maxxdrive industrial gear units.
The extruder flange option is available with Maxxdrive sizes 5 to 11, which deliver torque from 132,000 to 684,000 lb-in. (15 to 75 kNm). This broad availability enables adaptation to nearly all common connection types and sizes, while appropriately selected thrust bearings ensure safe absorption of process forces and a long operating life. In addition, NORD will customize an extruder shaft to precisely fit a customer´s shaft and use a range of bearing variants to match the specified requirements. This gives plant builders, manufacturers, and processors of plastics and rubber the flexibility to develop safe, high-performance drive units for various applications.
