NORD Releases New MAXXDRIVE™ Industrial Gear Size 14


NORD Gear Corporation has expanded its MAXXDRIVE™ large industrial gear unit product line to include the case size 14. The new size bridges the gap between the existing size 13 and 15. The size 14 MAXXDRIVE™ has a ratio range from 20:1 – 400:1 and a max torque of 1,885,000 in-lb.


Available in both parallel shaft and right angle design, the MAXXDRIVE™ large industrial gear units offer a unique combination of flexibility and durability for the most demanding high-torque applications. High ratios are possible by combining MAXXDRIVE™ with NORD’s CLINCHER™ or Helical-Bevel series to create a compound unit. With dedicated product specialists on staff in Waunakee, WI, NORD provides knowledgeable and prompt support from design, engineering and assembly.
