    DuoDrive Integrated Gear Unit

    DuoDrive is a revolutionary integrated gear unit/motor concept with hygienic washdown design. It combines a high-efficiency IE5+ motor with a single-stage helical gear unit in one housing. Due to its optimized system efficiency, high power density, and very low noise emissions, it is extremely well-suited for airport baggage handling systems. Together with its simple Plug-&-Play commissioning, the complete DuoDrive solution results in a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to other drive systems. 


    • Latest generation permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) integrated in a single-stage helical gear unit housing
    • Reduced Total Cost of Ownership and fast Return on Investment
    • Compact, smooth wash-down design for easy installation and optimized space utilization
    • Available with IP69K surface treatment and nsd tupH™ sealed surface conversion
    • Extremely high system efficiency of up to 92%
    • Industry-standard mounting dimensions
    • US availability Q4 2021



    NORDAC ON/ON+ Variable Frequency Drive

    NORDAC ON/ON+ VFDs were developed to meet the special requirements of horizontal conveyor technology and for use with the new IE5+ synchronous motor (NORDAC ON+). They are characterized by an integrated Ethernet interface, full Plug-&-Play capabilities, and a very compact design. NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives are a reliable, economic solution for IIoT environments.


    • Plug-&-Play solution for fast commissioning
    • Operation of asynchronous and synchronous motors
    • PLC functionality for drive-related functions (PLC onboard)
    • Compact, space-saving design due to integration of Ethernet communication

    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
    • Available with nsd tupHTM Sealed Surface Conversion
    • Reduced TCO and fast ROI
    • Non-ventilated variant (N-Design) for hygienic wash-down areas
    • Ventilated variant (F-Design) with a high overload capacity
    • Fully matched NORD modular system solution with gear unit, motor and variable frequency drive
    • N-Design available now. F-Design US availability Q4 2021

    LogiDrive Complete Drive System Package

    LogiDrive™ is an energy efficient, maintenance-friendly solution consisting of an efficient gearbox, IE4/IE5+ permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), and a decentralized variable frequency drive. Gear unit standardization and spare part reduction are easily achieved without sacrificing your ability to obtain modular replacements. Variable frequency drives and IE4/IE5+ motors support large speed ranges through the single gearbox/motor combination. Plug-&-Play decentralized technology make installation and maintenance a breeze. The LogiDrive system also maintains operational efficiency at partial load and low speeds, making it the ideal solution for high-volume logistics systems and other conveyor systems.


    • High efficiency at partial load and low speed ranges due to PMSM technology
    • Standardization of geared motor versions specially tailored to intralogistics and airports technology
    • Components can be replaced individually
    • Significantly reduces the total cost of ownership and provides a quick return on investment
    • Service friendly through Plug-&-Play technology

    Condition Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance

    The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is ushering in a new era that focuses on the acquisition and accessibility of data from intelligent, connected devices to increase operational efficiency, reduce costs, and accelerate processes.

    With condition monitoring, drive and status data are recorded periodically or continuously to optimize the operational safety and efficiency of machines and plants. Condition monitoring provides valuable information for predictive maintenance to proactively maintain machines and plant facilities, reduce downtime, and increase the efficiency of the entire plant.


    • Early detection and avoidance of undesired operating conditions
    • Avoidance of unplanned downtimes
    • Time-based maintenance is replaced by status-based maintenance
    • Machinery and plant downtimes can be planned based on drive and process data
    • Reduction of service and material costs
    • Longer service life of components and machines
    • Increased system availability

    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
