Nord Gear Corp. makes several extruder flanges for its MAXXDRIVE industrial gearboxes, which supply high-torque output.
The extruder flange option is available with MAXXDRIVE sizes 5 to 11, which deliver torque from 132,000 to 684,000 pounds per inch.
Appropriately selected thrust bearings ensure the safe absorption of processing forces and deliver a long operating life, Nord said. Also, Nord will customize an extruder shaft to precisely fit a customer’s shaft and use a range of bearings to match the specific requirements.
Nord Gear is based in Waunakee, Wis.
