Nord Drivesystems provides drive solutions for parcel distribution centres, providing energy efficiency and version reduction to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO), increase efficiency, and reduce costs.

The increasing time and cost pressures caused by the rapidly growing parcel volume from booming online trade means parcel distribution centres need highly efficient drive technology, which ensures high operational safety, minimum downtime, low TCO, and minimal maintenance effort.

Nord Drivesystems has a wide product portfolio, including the patented DuoDrive geared motor, energy-saving IE4 and IE5+ synchronous motors, modern drive electronics for decentralised use and control cabinet installation, and efficient gear units.

The permanent-magnet synchronous IE5+ motor generation – available in ventilated and smooth surface version – is suitable for economical operation in the partial load range.

The patented DuoDrive’s compact geared motor integrates the IE5+ synchronous motor into a single-stage helical gear unit housing, setting new standards for efficiency, installation space, and version reduction.
