High-efficiency NORD drives ensure state-of-the-art parcel transportation

Online trade is causing a real boom in the parcel industry. However, for parcel distribution centres to handle these increasing capacities improved production processes are required. The LogiDrive drive system from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is ideally suited for this purpose. NORD technology increases efficiency and reduces the number of versions at the same time.

The NORD drive solutions comprise IE4 and IE5+ synchronous motor technology as well as decentralised frequency inverters and gear units from the NORD modular system. This solution balances the two largest levers for TCO reduction: Energy efficiency and version reduction. The result is an optimum compromise between investment, operating and maintenance costs. The LogiDrive systems consist of an energy-efficient permanent magnet synchronous motor , a two-stage helical bevel gear unit and a NORDAC LINK frequency inverter which is installed close to the motor. The solution is extremely service friendly thanks to plug & play technology. It also has a modular design, so that all components of the drive technology can be individually serviced. LogiDrive drives can considerably reduce energy consumption in the parcel distribution centre.

Industry 4.0-capability of the NORD drives enable condition monitoring for predictive maintenance. For this, drive and status data are recorded and processed via the frequency inverter. From this monitoring important information can be derived for predictive maintenance, resulting in reduced downtimes and increased efficiency of the entire plant. An intelligent drive concept with higher efficiency as well as lower service and maintenance with reduced total cost of ownership – only available at NORD.
