NORD DRIVESYSTEMS drive solutions for the bakery industry

Monday, 26 October, 2020 | Supplied by: NORD Drivesystems (Aust) Pty Ltd



With its lightweight, corrosion-resistant gear units, smooth surface motors, frequency inverters and motor starters in washdown-optimised aluminium housings, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has a range of hygiene-friendly products for mixing and agitation processes in the bakery industry. The range is suitable for agitators, conveyor systems, weighing and filling plants or packaging machinery.

The manufacturer’s inverter technology is designed to ensure high positioning accuracy and reliable implementation of dynamic sequences. The drive units can also be controlled individually; for example, to regulate kneading and conveyor speeds and to prevent blockages or control the dough process. Due to their modular structure, the drive units are also service- and maintenance-friendly.

The nsd tupH surface treatment provides an anti-corrosion treatment for gear units, smooth motors, frequency inverters and motor starters in washdown-optimised cast aluminium housings. nsd tupH drive units are a robust and durable alternative to painted geared motors or stainless steel drive units. A respective treatment is available for all NORD products made from aluminium. In nsd tupH aluminium drive units, all DIN and standard components, including drive shafts, are made from stainless steel.

MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS are designed to ensure reliable operation in industries using mixing and agitation processes even under extreme conditions, offering high output torques up to 282 kNm, along with quiet running and long service life. The compact combination of MAXXDRIVE industrial gear units, the new SAFOMI IEC adapter and an energy-efficient electric motor from NORD is used for mixers and agitator applications to reduce the number of wearing parts and attached components.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has application-specific equipment options specifically designed for pumps, agitators and mixers with high process-related radial and axial bearing loads. This includes an agitator version (VL2 bearing) with large bearing spacing and reinforced bearing, as well as a Drywell version (VL3 bearing) with additional oil drip plate and leakage or oil sensor. For the VL2 and VL3 bearings, the bearing spacing is increased with attached components whereas the gear unit size remains unchanged. NORD also offers bearings that were intentionally oversized to meet the requirements of applications such as agitators in the bakery industry.
