With its single stage Nordbloc.1 helical gear units the Nord Drivesystems range includes innovative drive units with high efficiency and long service life. The drive specialist has now extended its successful series with three larger sizes.

The three new products SK 871.1, SK 971.1 and SK 1071.1 have powers from 0.12 to 45 kW and cover the torque range up to 1,000 Nm. Thanks to optimised bearings, they can reliably handle large axial and radial forces. The robust, cast iron gear units are therefore optimally suitable for pumps and agitators.

The innovative Nordbloc.1 helical gear units impress with their high efficiencies, compact design and ultimate reliability. They do not have any separating joints or closing caps. This increases the stability of the product and at the same time provides a smoother surface on which neither liquids nor solid materials can accumulate. The FEM-optimised Unicasehousing ensures maximum strength and rigidity.

The modular design provides wide application flexibility due to numerous configuration and mounting options. All variants are available as flange mounted (B5 or B14), or foot/flange mounted versions. Options for IEC and NEMA motor mounting as well as a wide range of equipment variants for shafts, bearings and lubrication can be flexibly implemented.

Innovative distance coupling
Higher, faster, further

The “Simple-Flex” series from Jakob Antriebstechnik is a novel, innovative distance coupling that can be manufactured up to 6m in length and requires no additional intermediate support. An ingenious composite tube with a multi-layer, angle-specific fiber configuration allows for a particularly simple design that works without the otherwise necessary coupling compensation elements on the two tube ends. With elaborate simulation calculations and test series, a composite pipe has been developed which has both flexural flexibility and high torsional rigidity. The very low weight and the associated low moments of inertia can guarantee the highest operating speeds and torques with excellent smoothness, without neglecting the compensation of shaft misalignments.

“Simple-Flex” is available with either rotationally symmetrical cone clamping ring clamping or with assembly-friendly half-shell hub. The two available composite pipe sizes cover torques up to 1000 Nm.

Subsidiary offers sales, service and support
New Branch Office in France

Published

on

On October 01, 2019 Viscotec opened a new branch in Mérignac, Bordeaux. The office in France is already the fifth Viscotec subsidiary worldwide.

It is planned to be a sales, service and support organization that will distribute and support both ViscoTec and preeflow products. VT France pursues essential goals: On the one hand, the presence of Viscotec in Europe is to be strengthened, the European sales structure is to be expanded and the French market is to be opened up. But also, the proximity to the customer and the direct contact to the end user are important factors. Viscotec also sees great potential in the French market and wants to exploit it as much as possible. Important sectors the subsidiary will focus on are – amongst others – the cosmetics, automotive and aerospace industry.

The branch manager and local contact is Christophe Lalanne, who has known Viscotec for many years and is very familiar with the products. Christophe has a technical degree with a focus on chemistry and specialization in bonding and adhesives. Christophe is also a “European Bonding Specialist”. From 2007 to 2011 he worked in sales and primarily focused on applications and solutions in the field of bonding. Since 2011 he has been employed as product manager for applications in the adhesives sector and thus also got to know the dispensers from Viscotec.

“We have known Christophe for a long time, and we trust him. We are sure that he will be able to bring Viscotec to the top in France and establish ViscoTec as a synonym for dispensing technology there,” says Georg Senftl, Managing Director of Viscotec .
