High efficient drive technology from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS

Intelligent drive solutions with a endless number of application options: This has been NORD's motto for over 50 years. Today we are one of the global leaders in the industry – the result of modern in-house production down to the smallest detail, complete quality control and strict alignment to customer requirements.

Optimally selected components ensure the perfect fit, flexibility and durability of our drive solutions. Benefit from a complete range of drive technology, which includes gear units, AC electric motors, industrial gear units, frequency inverters and motor starters for centralized and decentralized drive control.

What is unique about NORD drive solutions?

  • Efficiency
    Operating costs can be significantly reduced thanks to energy efficient synchronous and asynchronous motors up to super premium efficiency (IE4).
  • Quality
    High quality materials as well as our stringent quality management system and globally unified production standards ensure low wear and a long service life.
  • Toughness
    For use in harsh conditions we also supply our drive systems with corrosion protection using the cost-effective nsd tupH surface treatment.
  • Optimum processes
    We use the very latest production systems and production technologies to ensure high quality standards (KAIZEN, 5S, Visual Management, Shop Floor Management, Quality Circles).
  • Customer Focus
    We produce all mechanical and electronic components for our drive systems in-house and can therefore respond quickly and flexibly to customers' requirements.
  • Fast, on-time delivery
    We work continuously to optimize our seamless global supply chain.

Geared motors
The compact UNICASE housing design, which was developed by NORD, is now the global industry standard. The end result is a torsionally rigid housing with superior dependability and long service life.

For high performance: Geared motors from NORD

NORD produces a wide range of geared motors for a large variety of applications. For example, our helical geared motors offer a modular, flexible design and are machined in a durable, precision-made one-piece housing.

Due to their parallel offset configuration, parallel shaft geared motors have a shorter overall length and can be mounted directly on the drive shaft with the bolt-on version featuring a continuous hollow bore.With bevel gear units and worm gear units you save a great deal of space, because the motor shaft and the drive shaft are at 90° to each other. Our bevel gear units can also equipped with a backstop.

For greater productivity: Energy-efficient electric motors from NORD

Conservation of resources is important to us. Because of this, our electric motors meet or exceed all global minimum efficiency standards. These motors are suitable for use with 60hz and 50Hz mains. In addition, NORD supplies easily cleaned smooth-body motors, single phase motors and rolling mill motors for heavy duty applications.

For ultimate performance: Drive electronics from NORD

We ensure the optimal control of your drive unit with frequency inverters for control cabinet installation or for decentralized use directly on the application. Our inverters provide a large power range, scalable functions and high-precision control.
