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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
