Drive solutions in end-of-line packaging

During the last stage of the packaging process – the end-of-line packaging – heavy loads are moved over long travel distances. This requires individual and powerful drive systems.

NORD drive technology for end-of-line packaging

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers drive solutions for all types of packaging, strapping and palletising machinery and conveyor systems from a single source: geared motors, motors and decentralised frequency inverters that are fully matched and adjusted to the end-of-line packaging’s requirements.


NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers modular and tailor-made drive concepts for your application.

Various mechanical (flanges, shaft sizes) and electronic bus interfaces allow for flexible integration into packaging machinery.

Drive systems with decentralised inverters allow for more structural freedom in the field.


Decentrally controlled drive solutions from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS are significantly cheaper to purchase than conventional servo solutions.

When used with decentralised frequency inverters, components such as control cabinets and wiring are eliminated and the setup effort is significantly lower.

Depending on the system type and application, the savings can be up to 50%.


NORD synchronous motors impress with a long service life and low downtimes.

Having an increased inertia, they allow for the reliable movement of even the heaviest loads that can be found in end-of-line packaging.

Their design ensures easy maintenance and, if required, quick and simple replacement.

drive solutions in end-of-line packaging

NORD asynchronous technology with its increased inertia implements decisive advantages in end-of-line packaging. When moving heavy loads, it ensures better (movement) control than conventional servo solutions that must be adjusted to the respective application via large gear ratios. Furthermore, it enables ultimate process stability and reduces vibrations and the risk of damaging the load or packaging machine.

Case study: SYMACH

The Dutch machine manufacturer SYMACH successfully produces palletising machines. Instead of control boxes installed on the top of the machine, they now rely on decentralised drive units from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS. This results in various advantages.
