Maximum bearing uptime for wind power drivetrains – NSK AWS-TF Bearings
The AWS-TF Series of bearings was designed expressly for wind turbine gearbox applications, achieving up to 7 times the life of standard bearings in hydrogen-charged environments. That means dramatically extended service intervals, increased efficiency and lower operating cost.
Parallel Shaft and Helical Bevel Screw Conveyor Packages
NORD screw conveyor units are compact, cost-effective drive solutions. Closely stepped speed ratios combined with a direct mounted motor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for expensive top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating belted input systems reduces maintenance and increases reliability, efficiency, and performance.
