Power/mation, a high-tech automation distributor headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, recently recognized NORD Gear by presenting their Dynamic Partner Award for product innovation. Rob Olsen, Senior Account Representative at Power/mation, presented the award to Torsten Schultz, President of NORD Gear North America after stating "NORD Gear is being honored here today for their commitment to Product Innovation. Before NORD, power transmission products were all the same, but NORD perfected their designs". Rob continued, "some of the product innovations they have created are:
• The UNICASE™ design…a “ship in the bottle” minimizing oil leaks through the casting.
• QUADRILIP™ sealing ensuring a “leak proof design”…allowing Nord to ship speed reducers filled with oil… many manufacturers designs are not approved to ship filled with oil…..because they leak and are not approved as an oil shipping container.
• The FLEXBLOC™ "universal foot and flange-mount configuration”; a modular design allowing rapid assembly of thousands of variations of worm gear boxes, making it easy for the supplier, distributor and OEM customers to keep in inventory.
• NSDtupH “surface conversion” - a cost-effective, durable solution to the long standing issue of gear drives surviving in the wet, humid conditions of food manufacturing plants…without the issue of flaking paint or the cost of Stainless Steel.”
NORD Gear Corporation expresses sincere gratitude to Power/mation for earning their trust.
