For the transportation of bulk materials, conveyors are needed that differ in conveying direction, mass flow, conveying length and construction. NORD's reliable and robust drives are the answer: They ensure an interruption-free material flow and can be individually controlled for a precise and dynamic bulk material feed control.

Belt conveyors are used for a continuous transport of bulk materials in mining, mechanical engineering or in the field of plastic and paper recycling. The rubber or plastic conveyor belt is redirected via at least two drums, whereby usually one drum is powered and moves the belt by wrapping friction. For large belt conveyors with a high capacity, the long-life and low-maintenance MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units , two-stage helical bevel gear units, that supplemented the MAXXDRIVE series, are particularly suitable. They can be combined with a foot-mounted, high efficiency IE3 motor on a motor swing base or a frame and are connected to the motor via a hydraulic coupling.

The practical maintenance package from NORD – a combination of protective measures and monitoring systems – ensures that the investment functions even under harsh ambient conditions such as continuous operation, dust and the effects of weather.
