Nord Gear Corporation will show off its range of drive technologies at Pack Expo in Chicago this month.

At its stand, #E-9413, Nord will exhibit NSD Tuph, its aluminium alternative to stainless steel drives for food and beverage applications, which it says offers cost savings of 30 to 50 per cent over stainless steel.

As well as this, the stand will showcase Nord’s energy-efficient LogiDrive solution for manufacturing and material handling, which according to Nord includes high efficiency gearboxes, IE4 permanent magnet synchronous motors, and decentralised variable-frequency drives.

Nord engineers will be on the stand to walk customers through these solutions, as well as the company’s new helical worm made from high-strength aluminium and its Gripmaxx keyless interchangeable bushing system.

“Whether a manufacturer is designing packaging equipment, sourcing components to streamline production and lower cost of ownership, or looking for the latest automation technology in the industry, Nord offers a complete line of drive solutions engineered for adaptability,” the company said.

“With modular components that include a wide variety of gear and drive units, performance ranges, input configurations and mounting options, NORD serves your custom drive system and engineering needs wherever you are in the globe.”

Pack Expo International will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from October 14-17.
