Reliability and avoiding downtime are the top priorities for operators of baggage handling systems. The breakdown of even a single system component results in a backlog and unnacceptable delays. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has a proven track record and extensive knowledge of airport requirements and supplies drive solutions for a wide range of baggage handling applications .

All NORD system components are carefully selected to ensure smooth operation and optimized operational efficiency. The gear units are extraordinarily rugged, run quietly and feature industry leading service life. NORD modular solutions are extremely service and maintenance friendly which translates to reduced downtime and increased efficiency/availability of the entire system.

The reliability and cost-efficiency of electronically controlled NORD conveyor drives have proven themselves time and time again at airports throughout the world. The systems combine high flexibility and optimized functionality to ensure convenient and simple operation. NORD drives ensure particularly high conveying speeds that are often required due to more stringent safety measures. The mechatronic NORD drive systems are based on lightweight 2-stage bevel gear motors with high efficient, infinite life gearing. In combination with wall-mounted or motor-mounted frequency inverters, they form a complete and efficient drive solution. NORD also supplies the required cable connectors and interfaces to a variety of bus systems as well as the respective software.

The Modular NORD range of products enables complete drive solutions from a single source and reduces part number variants. This helps lower overall operating costs and the required spare part inventory. With LogiDrive, NORD supplies standardized, highly efficient drive solutions ideally suitedfor horizontal and inclined conveyors. LogiDrive solutions consist of a two stage right angle bevel gear unit, an energy saving IE4 synchronous motor and a NORDAC LINK field distribution system – a perfectly matched drive system for intralogistics and airport applications. IE4 synchronous motors really showcase their full cost savings in partial-load and partial-speed ranges, which are particularly common in airport baggage handling applications.

From design and commissioning to service and maintenance, NORD supports its customers in all phases of the project and supplies a quality product that meets or exceeds global standards. Thousands of NORD drive units are already in operation throughout the world. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has powered airport systems in Liverpool, Birmingham and Hamburg, as well as Ottawa, Johannesburg and Taipeh.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is recognized in the airport industry by well known international consultants and operators such as the German Airport Technology & Equipment (GATE) , the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and the International Association of Baggage System Companies (IABSC).
