Hot Saw

Customer: voestalpine Schienen GmbH

In 2004 we received the engineering contract from voestalpine rail for the rebuild of the drive of the existing hot saw.
The task was to replace the flat belt drive by a form-fit drive train.
The new form-fit drive train was performed by a cardan shaft and a bevel gear.
For easier mounting of the saw blade, the existing nut was replaced by a hydraulic clamping nut.

Technical Data:
Engine speed: n=740U/min
Nominal motor torgue: M=1419Nm
Bevel gear: gar ratio 1,75:1
permissible drive torque: 6600Nm
