NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has thoroughly redesigned its two-stage SK 02040.1 helical worm gear unit. The new SK 02040.1, made from high strength aluminium, replaces the previous cast iron product. The one-piece die cast UNICASE housing guarantees maximum strength and rigidity with low weight. In addition, aluminium is considerably more corrosion-resistant than steel and can be further protected with the aid of additional measures such as the highly effective nsd tupH surface treatment.
With the new SK 02040.1 the NORD DRIVESYSTEMS range now includes a high performance, light and versatile helical worm gear unit for a large number of applications
The SK 02040.1 has a wide power range from 0.12 to 1.1 kW and an output torque of up to 100 Nm. The wide range of speed ratios (from 5.37:1 up to 330:1) enables optimum adaptation to the customer’s requirements. The new NORD gear unit is available in a universal foot flange version and offers ultimate versatility through many equipment versions and includes mounting options such as flanges and torque arms. All versions are available with solid or hollow shafts. The motor can be mounted directly without a coupling of adapter (IEC or NEMA).
Powerful, light and versatile – with the SK 02040.1 NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has a reliable and compact helical worm gear unit in its range of products, which can be quickly and simply configured for a wide range of different applications.
