Moventas says recent testing and verification procedures substantiate that its Exceed high-torque gearbox has exceeded expectations.
According to the company, Exceed has a 10% decrease in size, provides 20% more torque density and consists of 100% Moventas technology. Testing and verification showed that torque-density improvement was even more significant than expected – exceeding 140 Nm/kg.
In addition to its torque density, the product features a lower weight, a smaller size, and best-in-class noise and vibration behavior. Compared with a conventional Moventas 3 MW gearbox, Exceed is nearly 4.5 tons lighter. Despite the lighter weight, no quality compromises have been made, the company notes.
According to Moventas, serial deliveries of Exceed will begin in the first quarter of 2016 for two customers from the company's gearbox factory in Finland.
