Siemens AG Drive Technologies Division (Mechanical
To absorb the very high torque and axial forces from the extrusion process, we have developed an extruder gear unit with double load sharing system and special thrust bearings. The bearing assembly can consist of up to eight thrust bearings in a row. Output torques from 200 to 35,000 Nm and center distances between 18.3 and 140 mm can be achieved. In addition, we can also provide customized solutions up to 20,000 kW.
