NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Offers Drive Solutions at Modex 2022
March 22, 2022
NORD DRIVESYTEMS will exhibit their latest innovative drive solutions at Modex 2022, focusing on technology for warehousing, distribution, and logistics. NORD’s modular design offers nearly unlimited versatility with more than 20,000,000 unique combinations of gearboxes, electric motors, and variable frequency drives. From conveyors to storage and retrieval devices, NORD is able to meet a wide range of needs. NORD will display these specialized solutions for the logistics industry at their Booth B7222:
NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drive
NORD developed the NORDAC ON/ON+ VFDs to meet the specialized requirements of horizontal conveyor technology and for the combined use with the new IE5+ synchronous motor generation. The VFDs feature an integrated Ethernet interface, PLC functionality, full Plug-&-Play capabilities, and a very compact design that can be wall or motor mounted. When combined with the NORD modular system, NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives offer a reliable, highly efficient, economic solution for IIoT environments.
IE5+ ultra high-efficiency synchronous motors
The new generation of NORD electric synchronous motors offer the highest operational efficiency on the market today with IE5+ technology. These motors feature a compact footprint that can be installed quickly and easily, even in applications where installation space is limited. They produce energy savings, reduce product variants, minimize operating costs, and operate at the same efficiency even under partial loads and low speed ranges. IE5+ motors are compatible with NORD’s modular product system and are available as a non-ventilated variant (N-design) for hygienic wash-down areas or as a ventilated variant (F-design) with a high overload capacity suited for intralogistics.
LogiDrive – the solution for intralogistics
NORD’s LogiDrive solution combines a gear unit, motor, and variable frequency drive to create a solution that is secure, flexible, and 4.0 ready! As a complete package, LogiDrive delivers high efficiency and supports large speed ranges to generate automation for stacker cranes, automated transports, and a variety of conveyors for high volume warehousing, manufacturing, and packaging systems.
Two stage helical bevel gear units
Two stage helical bevel gear units feature efficient operation in a modular design. They are made from a high-strength aluminum alloy and available in two housing designs – open for better heat dissipation for high axial and radial loads and closed for easy cleaning in wash-down applications. These robust gearboxes excel in light conveying and processing applications, providing a more efficient and reliable solution than a typical worm unit.
NORDBLOC.1 inline gear units
NORDBLOC.1 units are characterized by quiet, reliable performance with a housing design that offers easy cleaning. These innovative and patented gear units do not have bore plugs or assembly covers, and their smooth surface prevents pooling of liquids and solids. High axial and radial load capabilities enable safe operation and the large speed range provides flexibility in applications. Due to reinforced bearings, these units deliver a long service life, granting a low total cost of ownership and fast return on investment.
Condition monitoring for predictive maintenance
Condition monitoring for predictive maintenance focuses on status-based maintenance rather than time-based maintenance. Operating and drive data are recorded periodically or continuously to optimize the operational safety and efficiency of machines and systems. The data analysis can then be used to extract important information about the drives such as optimal oil change time, early detection of suboptimal operating conditions, and threshold values. The goal of condition monitoring is to proactively maintain machines and plant facilities, reduce downtimes, and increase overall plant efficiency.
