NORD smooth surface units are ideal for applications where sanitation and cleanliness is essential, such as food and beverage, waste water treatment, pharmaceuticals, and poultry and meat processing. Smooth surface motors include the HM and HMT series that are made from a high-strength, naturally corrosion resistant aluminum alloy and can be configured with options such as potted terminal boxes, condensation drain holes, and space heaters for low maintenance.
The smooth surface motor series can be supplied with a variety of protective coatings and finishes. These gear units offer include a range of NORDBLOC.1 Inline Gear Units, 93.1 Series Gear Units, and MINICASETM Gear Units.
Designed for the food and beverage industry applications, NORD's overhead conveyor drives feature heavy-duty construction and high-quality machined components.
With high efficiency and minimal maintenance requirements, the SK 9055 and SK 9155 have a very low overall cost of ownership while providing clean and reliable operation in food processing plants around the world. Designed with a mounting flange and output shaft that easily drop into industry-standard footprints.
The NORD Screw Conveyor Package offers a compact and cost-effective drive solution. Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating the belted input systems provides for easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance.
The new generation of NORD IE5+ synchronous motors are manufactured in-house and are especially well-suited for packaging applications. These motors feature a compact, hygienic design with smooth surfaces for high corrosion resistance and easy cleaning. IE5+ motors are available with IP69K surface treatment (when supplied as a complete gear unit). A motor-integrated encoder comes standard and an integrated mechanical brake is optional. By using these motors, the number of system variants can be reduced, lowering operating and maintenance costs. They have high compatibility and are intended for use with NORD Variable Frequency Drives (wall or cabinet mounted versions only).
DuoDrive is an integrated gear unit/motor concept with hygienic washdown design. It combines a high-efficiency IE5+ motor with a single-stage helical gear unit in one housing. Due to its optimized system efficiency, high power density, and very low noise emissions, it is extremely well-suited for the Food and Beverage Industry. Together with its simple Plug-&-Play commissioning, the complete DuoDrive solution results in a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to other drive systems.
NORDAC ON/ON+ VFDs were developed to meet the special requirements of horizontal conveyor technology and for use with the new IE5+ synchronous motor (NORDAC ON+). They are characterized by an integrated Ethernet interface, full Plug-&-Play capabilities, and a very compact design. NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives are a reliable, economic solution for IIoT environments.
