WAUNAKEE, Wis. (Feb. 27, 2019) – NORD Gear Corporation brings automated drive technologies to Chicago April 8-11, 2019 at ProMat – the biggest warehousing, material handling and logistics trade show in North America.
NORD will showcase its integrated and energy efficient drive solutions for manufacturing and material handling to nearly 45,000 supply chain professionals at the event. The intralogistics industry is one of NORD’s fastest-growing markets. According to Torsten Schultz, NORD President, one NORD advantage is its global integration “Three of the world’s top five material handling suppliers use NORD drive technology, and we have long-term supply agreements with two of the suppliers.”
He added that NORD provides global sales, engineering and customer support. “We support customers and drive systems in 98 countries – wherever their operations are located.”
NORD engineers will be at PROMAT to discuss its complete range of drive solutions for logistics needs at Booth S-2088, including:
The LOGIDRIVE® solution delivers integrated drive technologies for manufacturing and warehousing: high efficiency gearboxes; IE4 permanent magnet synchronous motors; and decentralized variable frequency drives (VFDs). In turn, the VFDs and IE4 motors support large speed ranges through gearboxes, to deliver automation for stacker cranes, automated guided vehicles, chain conveyors and roller conveyors, etc. NORD VFDs are capable of operating with all common field bus networks, offer free PLC integration, and provide simple commissioning with plug-in parameter boxes or NORD’s free programming software tool, NORDCON. Efficient operation at partial load and low speeds make LOGIDRIVE the solution for high-volume warehousing, manufacturing and packaging systems.
Right-angle worm, helical in-line and two-stage helical bevel gear units – NORD’s innovative distributed control AC vector drives and motor controllers operate near or directly mounted on motors and reduce load on the higher level control system. Plus, NORD’s decentralized VFDs can be freely configured and adapted to hundreds of applications: conveying, lifts, pumps, etc. As result, customers obtain an optimum drive solution and reduce installation and operating costs.
