NORD Unveils New Trade Show Booth And Drive Products At IPPE

NORD’s NSD TUPH surface conversion products provide a superior sanitary washdown solution for food producers – at a fraction of the cost of stainless steel drive systems

NORD Gear Corporation is attending the world's largest annual poultry, meat and feed industry event, the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE). There, NORD will be discussing cost-saving aluminum alloy drive systems for the food processing industry.

NORD is an annual exhibitor at the IPPE. The event, held February 12-14 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center, attracts more than 30,000 visitors. Drive system experts from NORD will present high-efficiency overhead conveyor, screw conveyor, bevel and in-line gearmotor solutions at booth #8013. Highlights include:

  • NORD’s modular Screw Conveyor Package is ideal for food processors. This high-efficiency design eliminates the need for costly separate V-belt drives by providing integral gearmotors or direct-coupled motors to a NEMA C-face reducer. Minimizing parts and eliminating the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts or guards provides easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance.
  • NORD’s alternative to stainless steel gear reducers, motors and VFDs is a high-strength NSD TUPH aluminum alloy surface conversion. Ideal for poultry and meat processing companies, this breakthrough material has the superior washdown advantages of stainless steel – with 30 percent less cost. Plus, aluminum is lighter than stainless steel, and has superior heat transfer properties. Sample NSD TUPH materials are available at the NORD booth for testing.
  • Designed for the food and beverage industry applications, NORD's overhead conveyor drives offer heavy-duty construction and high-quality machined components. With high efficiency and minimal maintenance requirements, the SK9055 and SK9155 have a very low overall cost of ownership while providing reliable operation in food processing plants around the world. These overhead conveyor drives are designed with a mounting flange and output shaft that easily drop into industry-standard footprints. The gear units incorporate the standard NORD VL3 spread bearing design with a dry cavity.

These are just a few of the drive solutions you’ll see at NORD’s booth #8013 at the 2019 IPPE Show.
