Nord Drivesystems Offers Industrial Gear Drives

Industrial gear units from Nord Drivesystems are used for a variety of heavy-duty applications such as bucket elevators, mixers, agitators, cranes, conveyor belt drives, bulk material handling, steel production, manufacturing and more.

These units provide high output torques, long service life with minimal maintenance, and offer extensive input, output, and mounting designs to ensure versatility over a wide range of applications. When combined with high efficiency motors and dynamic variable frequency drives, high performance and smooth operation is achieved.

The wastewater industry is known for its harsh operating environments. That’s why drives in this setting must be built for durability, corrosion protection, and have an optimized sealing system to keep debris out.

NORD’s industrial offerings for this highly specialized industry include UNICASE parallel shaft gear units, UNICASE helical bevel gear units, MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units, and NORDAC FLEX variable frequency drives.

UNICASE parallel shaft gear units are commonly used for surface and brush aerator applications because of their high radial and axial load capacity, advanced sealing system, heavy-duty (VL) bearing options, and their flexible horizontal or vertical mounting options. These units also feature a spread bearing design with DRYWELL option for additional oil leak protective measures.

For many systems in the bulk material handling industry, the NORD complete drive solution includes either a MAXXDRIVE industrial gear unit or large UNICASE helical bevel gear unit, an IE3 asynchronous motor with hazardous protection, and a NORDAC FLEX or NORDAC PRO SK 500P variable frequency drive.

UNICASE helical bevel gear units are commonly used for conveyor applications due to their compact design and load capacity whereas MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units are used for applications with greater torque requirements to efficiently handle the mass flow rate and reliably transport bulk goods. VFDs are an important part of the solution as well due to their functional safety features, integrated brake rectifiers for motor brake control, and POSICON integrated positioning mode for precise control.

The drives can additionally be controlled individually to intelligently meter, weigh and adjust the bulk goods flow rate to reduce backups and breakdowns as well as be implemented with customer-specific process functions such as automatic blockage detection/elimination and automatic mass flow regulation.
