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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
