                                          • SAFE AND EFFICIENT DRIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR CRANES

                                            The tasks of cranes in picking up loads and setting them down gently at a precise location requires special drives and integrated brakes as well as a frequency inverter technology, which ensures a soft start and generator braking via defined adjustable ramps. Smooth motion with high positioning accuracy is essential - and is often required with the simultaneous movement of the crane and the trolley as well as the control and synchronous operation for travelling drives. This places the very highest demands on the drive systems used.

                                            Throughout the world, manufacturers of cranes and trolleys rely on parallel shaft geared motors from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS with power ratings up to 200 kW and a wide range of gear ratios. Speeds are around 80 m/min for crane movement and 32 m/min for trolley movement, with accellerations of 0.2 m/sec. Two or three-stage basic types are available with hollow or solid shafts, in foot mounted, flange mounted or face mounted versions, each with the same housing. The unicase concept enables parallel shaft gear units with high output power and extremely compact gear unit dimensions. These in turn can be combined with many elements of the NORD modular system.

                                            A further emphasis is on bevel gear units, usually with hollow shafts and torque arms. With this drive version, the large range of standard components also allows the gear unit to be precisely matched to the requirements of the application. In addition to the high efficiency of gear units with helical, parallel shaft, bevel and worm gears, there are further decisive benefits to operators: highest operational reliability, high output torques, high axial and radial load capacity, quiet running, high efficiency, reduced maintenance and longer operating life. Additionally, products with protection classes IP55 and IP66 as well as rust and dust-protected versions with a special coating are used. Furthermore, gear units may are also befilled with synthetic oil if the cranes are to be used at high temperatures, for example in foundries.

                                                  Today’s steel industry has evolved into one gigantic, complex, segment catering to the world’s requirement for automobiles, ships, construction, structures, etc. Steel plants demand peak performance on a 24x7 basis with zero-maintenance and at the highest possible efficiency levels.

                                                  With its great expertise in drive technology solutions, NORD Drivesystems is now well known in the steel industry as a systems supplier with individual project consultancy, and has made a name for itself due to the use of its motors in the harsh environment of the steel industry. Although motors only form a small proportion of the investment volume of a steel works, they are a vital part of the plant as a whole. The drive units must operate in a harsh environment, which often involves extremely high temperatures. This means that they must be appropriately designed to cope with the requirements of the steelmaking industry. NORD drive units are used for roller conveyors, which run continuously and are only rarely accelerated, and in contrast for reversing steel rolling mills, in which the direction of rolling is reversed after each rolling process. Reversing operation places extreme electrical, mechanical and thermal stresses on the drive unit. Rolling operation is characterized by the fact that the rollers, including the material to be rolled, has to be accelerated within a very short time, with rapid switching cycles, and reversal of the direction of rotation.

                                                      Cement based materials are essential for sustainable building. However, cement manufacture is a sophisticated process whose individual stages require a great deal of energy. This makes energy costs one of the largest cost factors for the industry.

                                                      Because of this, cement production requires drive units which can stand up to harsh conditions and are also especially energy-efficient.
