MAXXDRIVE® Industrial Gear Units
MAXXDRIVE Industrial Gear Units were designed to fit the needs of heavy-duty applications such as bucket elevators, agitators, and drag conveyors. They are made from one-piece UNICASE housings to ensure high load capacity, long service life, and quiet operation. MAXXDRIVES are configurable with a variety of sealing options, bearings, and cooling and heating options so they can be easily adapted to a wide range of ambient conditions. These durable units are available in parallel shaft, right-angle, and MAXXDRIVE XT right-angle housing designs. The XT right-angle gearboxes provide the grain industry with a symmetrical design for mirror image installations, optimized thermal ratings, and effective fan cooling. MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units also have the option of adding NORD's Grain Endurance Package. This package consists of several protective measures to ensure a long operation life including a drying agent filter, an oil sampling port, a quick fit filter trolley connection, oil inspection glass, and oil drain cock.

Key advantages:
-Extensive input options and mounting designs
-Modular, flexible design configured precisely for your application
- Robust, one-piece housing
-Effective cooling systems extend the life of lubricants
-High torque capacity

90.1 Helical Bevel Units
Helical bevel gearmotors are made from one-piece UNICASE housings and provide reliable operation, low maintenance, and long service life. These versatile units offer exceptional flexibility with 11 different case sizes, a wide performance range, and various mounting and shaft options to choose from. The 90.1 helical bevel gearboxes also feature infinite life gearing, high axial and radial load capacity, minimum backlash, and heavy-duty bearings.

Key advantages:
-Foot, flange, or shaft mounted
-Hollow or solid shaft, keyless bore options (shrink disc and GRIPMAXX™)
-Various bearing designs for high axial and radial load capabilities
-Long service life, low maintenance

Electric Motors
NORD's portfolio of electric motors include both synchronous and asynchronous motors that adhere to international energy guidelines and certifications and range from standard IE1 efficiency up to IE4. They are designed with a focus on operational safety and can perform smoothly even in the harsh environments of many grain applications. All NORD motors are part of the modular product system that combines gearboxes, motors, and variable frequency drives for optimum performance, reliability, and versatility.

NORD electric motors are highly configurable with options including:
-Environmental protection features
-External cooling fans
-Thermal protection
-Connectivity solutions
-Explosion protection for gas and dust (Class I, Division 2 and Class II, Division 2)

Screw Conveyor Package
NORD's Screw Conveyor Package is a cost-effective alternative to traditional screw conveyor drives available for both helical bevel and CLINCHERTM gear units. This compact design reduces the number of parts, saves on installation space, and eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards. The Screw Conveyor Package provides easy system maintenance and increased reliability by combining closely stepped ratios with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input. The CEMA flange and shaft assembly is a design unique to NORD and combines an optimized sealing system complete with dual Viton lip seals, QUADRILIP sealing, and material evacuation ports to offer superior protection against unwanted debris.

Key advantages:
-Reduced operation costs
-Direct drive motor options (Integral or C-face)
-Gear efficiency up to 97%
-More direct torque transfer
-QUADRILIP sealing system
-Versatile flange - multiple bolting patterns
