<h2>What is Unique About NORD Drive Solutions?</h2>


Operating costs can be significantly reduced thanks to energy efficient synchronous and asynchronous motors up to super premium efficiency (IE4).


High quality materials as well as our stringent quality management system and globally unified production standards ensure low wear and a long service life.


For use in harsh conditions, we also supply our drive systems with corrosion protection using surface treatment.

Optimum Processes

We use the very latest production systems and production technologies to ensure high quality standards (KAIZEN, 5S, Visual Management, Shop Floor Management, Quality Circles).

Customer Focus

We produce all mechanical and electronic components for our drive systems in-house and can therefore respond quickly and flexibly to customers' requirements.

Fast, On-Time Delivery

We work continuously to optimize our seamless global supply chain.


<h2>Geared Motors</h2>

The compact UNICASE housing design, which was developed by NORD, is now the global industry standard. The end result is a torsionally rigid housing with superior dependability and long service life. Find out more about our geared motors.

<h2>Industrial Gear Units</h2>

Optimized geometries, robust designs and precise shaft alignment enable use in demanding, high-torque applications. See our selection of industrial gear units for yourself.

<h2>Electric Motors</h2>

NORD offers a large selection of electric motors from its own production – e.g. single phase motors, energy efficient motors and smooth-body motors.

<h2>For High Performance: Geared Motors From NORD</h2>

NORD produces a wide range of geared motors for a large variety of applications. For example, our helical geared motors offer a modular, flexible design and are machined in a durable, precision-made one-piece housing.

Due to their parallel offset configuration, parallel shaft geared motors have a shorter overall length and can be mounted directly on the drive shaft with the bolt-on version featuring a continuous hollow bore. With bevel gear units and worm gear units you save a great deal of space, because the motor shaft and the drive shaft are at 90° to each other. Our bevel gear units can also equipped with a backstop.
