Gear unit and motor in one: the new NORD DuoDrive

DuoDrive is a NORD-patented innovation that fully integrates the high-efficiency IE5+ motor together with a single-stage helical gear unit in one housing and thus optimises system efficiency. Compact installation space, high power density and very low noise emissions are only some advantages.

DuoDrive enables consistent version reduction paired with a smooth, unventilated and compact design. Elimination of various wearing parts results in lower maintenance. Together with its simple plug-and-play commissioning, the complete DuoDrive solution results in a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to previous drive systems. DuoDrive is suitable for use in the food industry as well as intralogistics .

With the revolutionary integrated geared motor concept, the IE5+ synchronous motor is installed in one housing together with a single-stage helical gear unit. As a system, the very compact DuoDrive in its hygienic wash-down design achieves a significantly higher energy efficiency than the already proven LogiDrive concept. With up to 92%, DuoDrive currently offers the highest efficiency of a gear unit/motor combination in this power class on the market, and achieves very high systems efficiency in the partial load range. It is thus future-proof and a real cost reducer. The first available DuoDrive size covers gear unit speed ratios of i = 3.24 to i = 16.2 and is designed for torque ranges of up to 80 Nm and speeds of up to 1,000 min-1.
