NORD delivers integrated power technologies to help the world’s largest consumer goods manufacturers, online retailers, warehouses and airports produce and move products faster, with less energy and more control. NORD will be showing its integrated material handling solutions at MODEX 2018 Booth B930, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga., April 9-12, 2018.
Customization saves time and money. NORD’s modular, quick-connect drive systems can be equipped with a variety of common industrial Ethernet communication protocol modules for remote monitoring and control of individual drive units. Plus, NORD can supply the units configured and supplied with required plug connectors for power, photo eyes, sensors and standard field bus systems to allow for easy installation.
At MODEX 2018, NORD’s drive system experts are on hand to discuss material handling solutions and integrated drive equipment installed for large warehouse, parcel and postal systems. Some of what NORD is showcasing at MODEX 2018 includes:
92.1 Helical-Bevel Gearbox: NORD’s 92.1 two-stage helical bevel reducer boasts up to 97 percent gear efficiency. Designed using finite element modeling technology with oversized output bearings and extremely accurate construction means extended service life, even under high radial loads. Plus, with flexible mounting and shaft designs, product installation is fast.
NORDBLOC.1 Helical In-Line Gear Units: suitable for a wide range of demanding applications, from the high-speed conveying power needed in warehouse and package handling systems to pumping and mixing food products.
IE4 Permanent Magnetic Synchronous Motors: Like the gearboxes and drives used with a new international airport baggage-handling system, NORD’s IE4 Permanent Magnetic Synchronous Motors and VFDs can be pre-configured and delivered with customer-specified power connectors, and photo eye, sensor and high-speed Ethernet IP plugs needed for easy daisy-chain installation.
NORDAC LINK (SK250E Variable Frequency Drive): This VFD family offers flexible drive capabilities for virtually any application and supports decentralized installations. NORDAC LINK installation is fast and simple, as is service. Integrated brake management assures wear-free actuation. Direct speed feedback via incremental encoder on the motor generates the highest possible acceleration and guarantees full motor torque throughout the entire speed range.
LogiDrive integrated solution: Combine the gearbox, permanent magnet IE4 motor, and the NORDAC LINK VFD yields NORD’s LogiDrive Solution. This combination achieves greater energy efficiency while greatly reducing the number of product combinations for the entire system. This solution is available with power ratings between 1.5 and 7.5 hp and available for 50 and 60 Hz power systems. NORD’s solution is modular and each of the components can be serviced separately, thereby reducing costs, reducing required variants, minimizing spare part inventory, and increasing uptime.
