Nord Drivesystems supplies reliable, safe and customised drive systems for conveying bulk materials in agriculture. For large conveyor belts, chain conveyors and large capacity bucket elevators the drive experts recommend their durable and low maintenance Maxxdrive™ Industrial gear units.
All bearing points and sealing surfaces of the MaxxdriveUnicase housing are machined in a single operation. Thanks to their two versions, helical or bevel gear units with flange mounted or push-on housings can be placed parallel or at right angles to the axis in conveyor systems.
They are available in eleven sizes with powers from 2.2 to 4,000 kW and are designed for torques from 15 to 250 kNm. Speed ratios of 5.54:1 to 30,000:1 can be implemented with the modular system. They can be combined with a foot-mounted, high efficiency IE3 motor on a motor rocker or frame and can be connected to the motor via a hydraulic coupling.
The practical maintenance package from Nord Drivesystems ensures that the industrial gear units function reliably for long periods, even under adverse conditions such as continuous operation, the effects of weather and abrasive dust. Back stops to prevent the return flow of material when at a standstill, auxiliary drives for maintenance operation as well as ATEX drive technology for use in explosion hazard areas are just a few examples of the extensive package of options.
For smaller conveyor systems Nord Drivesystems also has a large range of low maintenance bevel gear, parallel shaft and worm geared motors in Unicase housings, which have already proven themselves in many agricultural applications due to their robustness, durability and efficiency. All Nord geared motors can be controlled with frequency inverters such as the Nordac Link field distributor.
This results in considerable benefits such as rapid commissioning and simple parameterisation according to the process requirements as well as variable speed operation and load-independent speed control. These benefits combine with adjustable acceleration ramps for low wear operation, efficiency-optimised motor operation as well as integrated safety functions, so that the extra costs for a frequency inverter soon pay for themselves.
As standard, Nord frequency inverters are equipped with a powerful PLC, which reduces the load on the higher-level controller and performs autonomous control tasks. The freely programmable PLC processes data from sensors and actuators and if necessary, initiates a sequence control and communicates drive and application data to the control centre and networked components.
Nord Drivesystems offers fast and practical support 24/7 for day-to-day work such as product selection, ordering and maintenance with the myNORD customer portal. This provides online tools which have been developed to make customers' work as easy as possible - from planning and design to order tracking.
