Nord Drivesystems says it is a powerful partner for drive systems in the bakery industry with its lightweight, corrosion-resistant gear units, smooth surface motors, and frequency inverters.

The company also offers drive solutions for mixing and agitation processes.

Whether agitators, conveyor systems, weighing and filling plants or packaging machinery, Nord Drivesystems says it offers efficient and hygienic drive solutions for the bakery industry that meet the special requirements on hygiene, reliability, and robustness.

The manufacturer’s inverter technology guarantees high positioning accuracy and safe implementation of dynamic sequences, according to Nord Drivesystems. The drive units can be controlled individually, for example, to regulate kneading and conveyor speeds, to prevent blockages or control the dough process.

Due to their modular structure, the drive units are also service- and maintenance-friendly. For the bakery industry, the nsd tupH surface treatment provides anti-corrosion treatment for gear units, smooth surface motors, frequency inverters, and motor starters in wash-down-optimised cast aluminium housings. The fanless smooth surface motors do not spread germs and run quietly.

Maxxdrive industrial gear units from Nord Drivesystems ensure reliable operation in mixing and agitation processes even under extreme conditions and offer high output torques of up to 252 kNm, along with quiet running and long service life.

The compact combination of Maxxdrive industrial gear units, the new Safomi IEC adapter and a reinforced output flange is the best choice for mixers and agitator applications to reduce the number of wearing parts and attached components, according to the company.

Nord Drivesystems offers application-specific equipment options that combine high performance and efficiency, specifically designed for 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.

Nord Drivesystems is a member of the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA).
