Heavy-duty drives that meet the needs of plastic extrusionManufacturers in the plastics-processing industry appreciate the long service life, the low maintenance and the high energy efficiency of Nord Drivesystems’ specialist drives. For use in extruders, the company offers extruder-type drives that are optimised for heavy-duty operations.

Extrusion has established itself as the most important manufacturing technique in the field of production and processing of thermoplastics. The high-performance MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units from Nord Drivesystems ensure the required extruder drive. As one of the most important manufacturers the drive specialist also produces complete extruder-type drive solutions. This enables adaptation to almost all common connection dimensions. Due to generously dimensioned thrust bearings, safe absorption of process forces and a long operating life can be ensured.

The “extruder” option can be customised to the customer’s shaft and optimally matched to the customer’s demands with several bearing variants. This gives plant constructors, manufacturers and processors of plastics the opportunity to develop safe and highly reliable drive units that are particularly versatile. Extruder types are available for the MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units in sizes 5 to 11 with rated torques from 15 up to 75kNm.
