NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has developed the nsd tupH anti-corrosion treatment for use in demanding environments with stringent hygiene requirements. The innovative surface treatment, which makes aluminium drives extremely robust and durable, also impressed the Australian company Smalte Conveying Solutions.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers a wide range of smooth surface motors for industries and applications with high hygiene standards. In order to fully support the requirements of lower power motors, the drive specialist has now developed an additional motor size.
With the two-stage NORDBLOC.1 bevel gear unit, NORD launched high performance, washdown-optimised aluminium drives for hygienic applications. Now, the drive specialist expands its successful series with smaller gear units for torques up to 50 Nm and thereby offers an efficient alternative to worm gear units – for example for smaller conveyor belts.
