    Smooth Surface Units

    NORD smooth surface units are ideal for applications where sanitation and cleanliness is essential, such as food and beverage, waste water treatment, pharmaceuticals, and poultry and meat processing. Smooth surface motors include the HM and HMT series that are made from a high-strength, naturally corrosion resistant aluminum alloy and can be configured with options such as potted terminal boxes, condensation drain holes, and space heaters for low maintenance. The HM series can be supplied with a variety of protective coatings and finishes while the HMT motors are supplied with nsd tupHTM. Smooth Surface gear units offer include a range of NORDBLOC.1 Inline Gear Units, 93.1 Series Gear Units, and MINICASETM Gear Units.


    • QUADRALIP™ seals on both shaft ends
    • Threaded cable entry holes
    • Easy to clean and corrosion-resistant
    • Sealed and gasketed terminal boxes
    • Available with nsd tupHTM Sealed Surface Conversion
    • Reduced TCO and fast ROI
    • Moisture resistant varnished dipped windings
    • Continuous Duty / Premium Efficient / Non-ventilated

    NORDBLOC.1 SK 93.1 with Hygienic Motor


    nsd tupHTM Sealed Surface Conversion System

    This patented solution is not paint; it’s a chromate-free chemical process that changes the physical properties of the aluminum housing, creating a surface that is up to 7 times harder than the original aluminum. After the process is complete, the housing receives an additional sealant that is resistant to contact corrosion from acids and alkalis (entire pH range), will not flake, and will not propagate damage when impacted or scratched. This solution is ideal for harsh environments involving chemicals or wash-downs, and where sanitation and cleanliness are the highest priority. 


    • Conforms to FDA Title 21 CFR 175.300
    • Lightweight compared to stainless steel
    • Does not flake or chip like paint
    • No penetration of corrosion, even if damaged
    • Cost effective alternative to stainless steel
    • Easy to clean surfaces

    Overhead Conveyor Drives

    Designed for the food and beverage industry applications, NORD's overhead conveyor drives feature heavy-duty construction and high-quality machined components.

    With high efficiency and minimal maintenance requirements, the SK 9055 and SK 9155 have a very low overall cost of ownership while providing clean and reliable operation in food processing plants around the world. Designed with a mounting flange and output shaft that easily drop into industry-standard footprints.


    • High overhung load capacity
    • QUADRALIP™ sealing system
    • Spread bearing design with dry cavity for optimized oil leakage protection
    • Low maintenance, long service life
    • Gear efficiency up to 95%

    Screw Conveyor Package 

    The NORD Screw Conveyor Package offers a compact and cost-effective drive solution. Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating the belted input systems provides for easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance.


    • Reduced cost
    • Large ratio range
    • Direct drive motor options (Integral or C-face)
    • No belt maintenance or belt guarding required
    • Reduced parts / higher reliability / space savings
    • Higher efficiency
    • More direct torque transfer


    IE5+ Ultra High-Efficiency Synchronous Motors 

    The new generation of NORD IE5+ synchronous motors are manufactured in-house and are especially well-suited for packaging applications. These motors feature a compact, hygienic design with smooth surfaces for high corrosion resistance and easy cleaning. IE5+ motors are available as with nsd tupHTM Sealed Surface Conversion or IP69K surface treatment (when supplied as a complete gear unit). A motor-integrated encoder comes standard and an integrated mechanical brake is optional. By using these motors, the number of system variants can be reduced, lowering operating and maintenance costs. They have high compatibility and are intended for use with NORD Variable Frequency Drives (wall or cabinet mounted versions only).


    • Highest operational efficiency with IE5+ technology
    • Reduction of variants through constant torque over a wide speed range
    • Easy to clean and corrosion-resistant
    • Fanless motor design
