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 provides a breakthrough aluminum surface conversion alternative to stainless steel gearmotors at a fraction of the price. NORD’s exclusive NSD TUPH™ surface conversion is available for a full line of drive equipment, and provides all the sanitary protection food and beverage applications demand. A major U.S. poultry processor recently demonstrated a 53 percent reduction in operating costs after using premium efficient gear units with NSD TUPH. Plus, global soft drink, fruit juice drink and regional beer manufacturers have made the switch.

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.
