NORD Drivesystems produces helial, parallel shaft, bevel gear and worm gear units and is the only manufacturer in the world that produces large scale industrial gear units up to 250,000 Nm as Unicase gear units. Our own NORD Geared Motors gear, shaft housing and motor production facilities guarantees that our customers always obtain high quality and reliable deliveries typical for NORD. Supplemented and strengthened by our own electronics production facilities. NORD offers customers NORD Geared Motors which are complete sophisticated system solutions with the very highest levels of economy and efficiency.
NORD GEARED MOTORS
As early as 1981, NORD developed the revolutionary Unicase construction. A closed housing manufactured from a single block combines all the elements of the gear unit.
- Single housing which integrates all bearings
- Complete machining in one step
- High output torques
- High axial and radial loads
- High reliability
- Long service life
- Quiet running.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS INDUSTRIAL GEARED MOTORS
Up to 250,000 Nm NORD is the only manufacturer which produces modular industrial gear units with an output torque of up to 250,000 Nm in a onepiece Unicase housing.
Modular Industrial Gear Units
The optimally matched individual components form the basis for a wide range of versions, great flexibility and short planning and installation times. This enables the drive solutions to be individually tailored to the customer’s requirements with short delivery times, even for large gear units.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS MOTORS
NORD develops its own motors and supplies them to all major markets throughout the world. This ensures a high level of independence from external suppliers and therefore provides our customers with the decisive advantage of short and highly dependable delivery times
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS FREQUENCY INVERTERS AND MOTOR STARTERS
NORD produces frequency inverters and motor starters for the necessary power electronics. Inverter solutions are available for traditional installation in the control cabinet as well as for decentralised and fullyintegrated drive units.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS INDUSTRY 4.0 READY
We have the drive units for intelligent processes: Networked – Autonomous – Scalable. Intelligent drive units from NORD Geared Motors now play an important role in highly networked systems, in order to advance the so-called fourth industrial revolution, which focuses on the extensive exchange of information at all levels.
“NORD 4.0 READY” means that NORD Geared Motors units are networked, autonomous and scalable. The key to this are our frequency inverters with their powerful processors and comprehensive equipment with interfaces and functions. Frequency inverters not only monitor themselves and the motor, but also their effect on the load situation within the plant segments and beyond.
The integrated PLC processes the data from the sensors and actuators and if necessary initiates a sequence control and communicates high quality drive and application data to the control centre and other networked components. For example, intelligent sequence controls can enable the drive unit to decide independently on a branch position and act accordingly. However, the drive units can also communicate with each other: “Attention, I am directing a package toward you; start your conveyor belt.” A slave drive can then synchronise to a master for a certain task and then return to normal operation. Hundreds of typical functions and parameters are saved and can be simply adopted.
In this way, the frequency inverter can coordinate both simple and complex applications independently from the plant control system and if necessary can respond to changes to the process or remedy many process faults independently without external intervention.
