New gear unit series for high torques

03.04.2009
Siemens Drive Technologies expands its FLENDER gear program with a gear unit series for up to 1.4 million newton-meters.

With its high torque range, the new gear units are especially suited for applications in the steel and cement industries, conveyor systems, and sugar production.


At this year’s Hannover Messe, Siemens is unveiling a new gear unit series for high torques of up to 1.4 million newton-meters (Nm). With this new addition, Siemens now offers gear unit series covering a torque range from 3,000 Nm to 1,400,000 Nm.

The gear units are available as spur gear and bevel spur gear versions with gear ratios from 1 to 450. The gear unit series features a modular design and is built entirely of standard components. This means that low-cost gear unit series are now also available for applications that were forced to use custom-built components due to high torque requirements.

The heavy industrial gears in the Flender series are offered as two to four-stage spur gear and bevel spur gear units, and for horizontal or vertical mounting positions. The high degree of standardization means that both gear and bevel spur gear versions can be installed with the same components and standard enclosures. Both versions also offer the same output shaft solutions for different output concepts.

The progressive ratio of sizes allows fine gradation in the high torque range. Special requirements are implemented by the use of standard components or custom solutions, but they are always based on the modular system. The heavy industrial gears may be used universally in all applications that require high torque, as in the steel and cement industries, conveying systems, and sugar production.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
