How do gearbox and gear drive providers navigate the interesting challenges found in steel, cement, paper, and construction applications? Apparently, one application at a time. Thanks to condition monitoring technology, IoT solutions and the flexibility of engineering teams today, plant downtime is not as problematic as it has been in the past. The secret to success in heavy industrial markets comes down to staying ahead of component failures.
The steel industry is known for having some of the toughest environmental conditions including the high temperatures of continuous casting applications, very heavy loads, and irregular operating modes of hot roller systems. NORD’s gear units, motors, and control products ensure continuous performance and are engineered to handle the toughest loads and environmental hazards.
Seco/Warwick delivered a roller-type unit (furnace) intended for spheroidizing rings for the bearing industry. The solution will be operated in the Kielce plant of the global bearing manufacturer – NSK.
