At Anuga FoodTec 2024, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will present its solutions for the food and beverage industry, including its decentralised asynchronous drives, which provide decisive advantages for end- of-line packaging.

The NORD DRIVESYSTEMS’ drive solutions promise high energy efficiency and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

NORD asynchronous motors in end-of-line packaging can achieve cost benefits of up to 50 per cent when packaging food and beverages.

Centrally controlled servo motors are usually used in this context. In contrast, controlled asynchronous motors from NORD are an efficient and economical alternative.

When used with decentralised frequency inverters like the NORDAC ON, components such as control cabinets and the effort for wiring and installation are significantly reduced.

If a control cabinet is required, the NORDAC PRO SK 500P is recommended as its power range of up to 22 kW is ideal for the industry.

Drives for conveyor technology

NORD also offers suitable solutions for further processing stages of food and beverages. The NORD IE5+ synchronous motor impresses with maximum energy efficiency and exceeds the previously defined efficiency classes.

Since the permanent magnet synchronous motor achieves its constant torque over a wide speed range, it enables a reduction of drive variants in a complete system. This reduces the administrative costs and therefore the TCO.

The DuoDrive was specially optimised for the requirements of the food industry. An IE5+ motor is integrated into a helical gear unit with this patented gear unit/motor combination. This not only achieves high system efficiency. Fewer wearing parts and reduced maintenance effort also enable further positive cost effects.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will present these and more drive solutions from 19 to 22 March 2024 at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne.
