The manufacturer’s innovative inverter technology guarantees high positioning accuracy and reliable implementation of dynamic sequences. The drive units can be controlled individually, for example, to regulate kneading and conveyor speeds and to prevent blockages or control the dough process. Due to their modular structure, the drive units are also service- and maintenance-friendly.

Corrosion protection in demanding environments.
The nsd tupH surface treatment provides an outstanding anti-corrosion treatment for gear units, smooth motors, frequency inverters and motor starters in wash-down-optimised cast aluminium housings. nsd tupH drive units are a robust and durable alternative to painted geared motors or stainless steel drive units. A respective treatment is available for all NORD products made from aluminium. In nsd tupH aluminium drive units, all DIN and standard components, including drive shafts, are made from stainless steel. The fanless smooth motors do not spread germs and run very quietly.

Strong drive packages for mixer applications
MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units ensure reliable operation in industries using mixing and agitation processes even under extreme conditions and offering high output torques up to 282 kNm, along with quiet running and long service life. The compact combination of MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units, the new SAFOMI IEC adapter and an energy-efficient electric motor from NORD is the best choice for mixers and agitator applications to reduce the number of wearing parts and attached components.

The SAFOMI adapter combines the functions of a standard IEC adapter and an oil expansion tank in one single component. Its use on the agitator drive increases operational reliability and lowers maintenance efforts. Oil tanks and hoses as well as the radial shaft seal between gear unit and IEC cylinder are not required. The SAFOMI adapter is available for parallel gear units in sizes 7 to 11 (output torques from 25 to 75 kNm).

Robust equipment options
NORD offers application-specific equipment options that combine high performance and efficiency, specifically designed for pumps, agitators and mixers with high process-related radial and axial bearing loads. This includes an agitator version (VL2 bearing) with large bearing spacing and reinforced bearing, as well as a Drywell version (VL3 bearing) with additional oil drip plate and leakage or oil sensor. For the VL2 and VL3 bearings, the bearing spacing is increased with attached components whereas the gear unit size remains unchanged. NORD also offers bearings that were intentionally oversized to meet the requirements of applications such as agitators in the bakery industry.

Compact manifold base combines solenoid valves and vacuum ejectors

There are always applications across industries that require both positive and negative pressure. In such cases, it was previously necessary to resort to two multiple connection plates. As a solution, SMC has therefore combined two proven products with the 5/2-way solenoid valves of the JSY series and the vacuum generators of the ZK2-A series as a new series “JSY and ZK2-A” on a single manifold base.
