NORD Gear Corporation brings integrated drive solutions to Pack Expo in Chicago Oct. 14 - 17, 2018. This is the biggest processing and packaging trade show in North America. Along with 2,500 leading suppliers of advanced packaging equipment and automation technologies, NORD will showcase its energy efficient drive technology for manufacturing and material handling, as well as its cutting edge alternative to stainless steel drive systems for the food and beverage packaging industries.

NORD engineers will be on site to discuss our range of intelligent drive solutions for your processing and packaging needs at Booth #E-9413, including:

  • The LOGIDRIVE® solution – NORD delivers drive technology for manufacturers that need energy efficient and maintenance-friendly solution. The LogiDrive solution includes a high efficiency gearboxes, IE4 permanent magnet synchronous motors and decentralized variable frequency drives. Gear unit standardization and spare part reduction are achieved without sacrificing your ability to obtain modular replacements. Variable frequency drive and IE4 motor support large speed ranges through single gearbox and motor combination, and the decentralized drive with plug-and-play technology makes installation and maintenance and breeze. Efficient operation at partial load and low speeds make this the ideal solution for high-volume manufacturing, warehousing and packaging system.
  • NORD’s NSD TUPH™ – Molecular conversion of aluminum alloy provides drive equipment with all the protection food and beverage applications demand. A cost-effective alternative to stainless steel, NORD’s aluminum alloy surface conversion solution is ideal for harsh environments involving chemicals or wash-downs, and where sanitation and cleanliness are the highest priority. Plus, it provides cost-savings of 30-50 percent versus purchasing stainless steel drive solutions.
  • New Helical Worm – The redesigned two-stage SK 02040.1 gear unit is ideal for conveyors in food and beverage, bottling, manufacturing, warehousing and packaging applications. It is made from high-strength aluminium alloy, and the one-piece die-cast aluminium UNICASE™ housing provides maximum strength and rigidity with low weight. In addition, a new universal mounting design offers significant customer advantages.
  • GRIPMAXX™ – This NORD bushing system offers keyless interchangeable bushings for mounting NORD hollow shaft reducers onto a wide range of driven solid machine shaft sizes. The system was developed using the latest in Finite Element Modelling technology in order to best optimize material selection, mechanical design, and performance. It also eliminates the typical assembly and disassembly challenges of using interference fits by providing generous assembly and disassembly clearances, ensuring easy installation and removal of the gearbox.

Whether a manufacturer is designing packaging equipment, sourcing components to streamline production and lower cost of ownership, or looking for the latest automation technology in the industry, NORD offers a complete line of drive solutions engineered for adaptability. With modular components that include a wide variety of gear and drive units, performance ranges, input configurations and mounting options, NORD serves your custom drive system and engineering needs wherever you are in the globe.
