iba 2023: Nord Drivesystems to focus on hygienically sensitive applications in baking and confectionery

At iba 2023, Nord Drivesystems will present its large range of drives focusing on reliable, efficient and easy-to-clean drive solutions.

An alternative to stainless steel, the nsd tupH surface treatment process makes drive surfaces very corrosion-resistant, similar to stainless steel.

According to Nord Drivesystems, this is not a coating, but a treatment based on an electrolytic process that creates a protective layer that is permanently bonded to the substrate material so nothing can detach or flake off.

Drives with the nsd tupH surface treatment are largely resistant to acids and alkalis and can be cleaned reliably and hygienically. The efficient surface treatment can be used in hygienically critical areas in the food, beverage, and packaging industry.

The new IE5+ motor generation was designed by Nord Drivesystems with a special focus on its use in the food or beverage industry as well as the intralogistics sector. The IE5+ generation is available in both fanless and smooth versions up to a power of 4.0 kW with a continuous torque from 1.6 to 18.2 Nm and speeds from 0 to 2,100 min-1.

The smooth-surface, hygienic design of the fanless variant is particularly efficient, easy to clean, corrosion-resistant and wash-down capable. It is therefore ideal for reliable use in hygienically sensitive environments. If desired, nsd tupH surface treatment and the protection class IP69K are available. The outstanding feature of the particularly compact and energy-efficient synchronous motors is their constant high efficiency – up to 95% over a wide torque range. As a result, they also offer optimum energy consumption performance in partial load and speed ranges.

The Safomi-IEC adapter (SAFOMI = Sealless Adapter For Mixers) from Nord Drivesystems, which was specially developed for mixers and agitators has an integrated oil expansion chamber and thus provides the Maxxdrive industrial gear units with decisive advantages such as increased reliability and reduced maintenance.

Compact and simple in design, the adapter has an integrated oil expansion volume. Oil tanks and hoses as well as the radial shaft seal that is subject to leakage and wear between gear unit and IEC cylinder are not required. Safomi is available for Maxxdrive parallel gear units and in sizes 7 to 11, ie for maximum output torques from 25 to 75 kNm. The compact combination of the Maxxdrive industrial gear unit, Safomi-IEC adapter and a drive motor is an optimal choice for mixer and agitator applications in order to reduce wearing and attached components.

The presentation at iba 2023, from October 22 to 26, 2023 at the Fairground Munich, will take place in Hall B3, Stand 490.
