Last year, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS extended its capacities in China and at its U.S. site in Waunakee. Also, motor production was considerably extended with the completion of a new motor factory in Poland. At the Bargteheide site, a new automated small parts store is being built. By competitively expanding its product portfolio, NORD has taken up important future topics including Industry 4.0 and energy efficiency as well as diversification of its range of NORD drive solutions.
The new NORDAC PRO SK 500P represents a milestone in frequency inverter innovation, offering ultimate functionality, connectivity and modularity. In addition to improved characteristics and performance features, the new inverter generation uses the proven NORDAC parameter structure and is physically and functionally downward compatible.

A new IE5+ synchronous motor with a significant higher energy efficiency supplements the electric motor range. In particular, it can be used for baggage handling, intralogistics and in the post & parcel sector.
The NORDCON APP is of interest for end customer service technicians. For the first time, this app provides a mobile commissioning and service solution for all NORD drives - speeding up installation, maintenance and troubleshooting.
In the heavy-duty sector, the MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units series has been supplemented by the new MAXXDRIVE® XT optimising the proven modular system for applications with high thermal limit powers, ideally suitable for use on conveyor belts for ores and other bulk materials.

Concepts for Condition Monitoring ( Condition Monitoring ) and Predictive Maintenance complete the expansion of the range. With this, NORD is able to implement economical solutions to detect impermissible operating states at an early stage and avoid unscheduled downtimes. This wide range of new developments in drive technology provides a solid basis for the 2020 anniversary year in which NORD DRIVESYSTEM has been excelling for 55 years.
