Cost reduction through efficient energy-saving motors

Nord Drivesystems recently launched a synchronous motor which boasts a significantly
higher energy efficiency (IE5+). This motor can be supplied with or without a fan. It is also suitable for wash-down and intralogistics applications when incorporating a nsd tupH surface treatment.

According to managing director for Nord Drivesystems in Australia, Max Jarmatz, this latest generation permanent magnet synchronous motor has considerably lower energy losses than its predecessor, the IE4 series. “This unventilated smooth motor achieves a high efficiency which, at times, proves to be more efficient via a wide torque range,” says Jarmatz.

“It is optimally suitable for operation in a partial load range and the compact IE5+ motor offers a high-power density with less installation space required.”

Jarmatz noted that the IE5+ series will initially be launched in a size for power ranges from 0.25 to 1.1 kW, with a continuous torque from 1.6 to 4.8 Nm and speeds from 0 to 2,100 min-1. The motor can be directly mounted according to NEMA or IEC.

“We will gradually extend this motor concept to include additional sizes and powers based on demand and customer requirements,” he said.

A drive for hygienic requirements
The IE5+ is ideal for hygiene sensitive and harsh environments because it is easy to clean and wash down and is corrosion resistant. “A nsd tupH surface treatment and IP69K protection class is available as an option as well as an integrated mechanical brake”.

The nsd tupH surface treatment offered by Nord is an outstanding corrosion protection for gear units, smooth surfaced motors, frequency inverters and motor starters in wash-down optimised cast aluminium housings. The drives are easy to clean and largely resistant to acids and alkalis. It is even possible to use high-pressure cleaners or apply aggressive media. The fanless smooth surfaced motors prevent the spreading of germs and run very quietly.

Jarmatz concluded by saying that, an integrated encoder also forms part of the standard equipment. “The new IE5+ motor can be combined with Nord gear units and drive electronics as a modular system and will be available from the second quarter of 2020,” said Jarmatz.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS’s NSD tupH gets the thumbs up from a world-renowned company in the food industry

As a household name in both the local and international market, a renowned food company well known for their range of sauces, soups, stocks and juices, looked to a high-quality supplier to meet its stringent automation requirements.

With Australia as the main manufacturing hub, products are exported to different regions around the world, including parts of UK, Asia, New Zealand and Canada. Considering the high volumes produced out of Australia, it is not wonder the search was on for a  robust solution for increased productivity and zero downtime.

With manufacturing demand on the rise, the company went in search of a geared motor designed to best withstand high frequency and high pressure washdown cycles. Not looking to just any supplier, they needed robust geared motors to match their stringent application requirements for conveyor and mixers in the hygienic wash down area. Of course the need for 24.7 technical support goes without saying.

Finding a reliable solution was no easy task as the gear drives in an environment such this tend to have a shortened service life and their painted surfaces do not last. In a search for a like-minded supplier, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS came to mind.

NORD DRIVESYSTEM Australia’s Phil Richards, Victorian Key Account Manager says that NORD’s new-generation NSD tupH aluminium drives passed all the tests. “The NSD tupH was designed with the customer in mind. As one of the most recent additions to our product range, we are finding this aluminium drive to be one of our most sought-after offerings,”

Combining decades of expertise, advanced R&D and its customer-centric nature, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS today offers a sleek surface treatment to make its IP-69 rated aluminium drive robust and corrosion-resistant to withstand harsh wash downs and meet stringent hygienic requirements whilst remaining competitively priced.

“The proof is in the pudding with this product. The customer first performed several trials with NORD‘s NSD tupH in their plant and were so happy with the performance of the surface protection that they have made it a site standard for geared motors being installed in hygienic wash down areas,” Richards continues.

Phil continues by saying that the NORD NSD tupH is a paint-free solution complete with a smooth surface and finless fanless motors for easy cleaning. “Gearboxes are also available with stainless steel hollow or solid output shafts.

“In the end, we have a happy customer who has now specified our product as a standard. The NORD NSD tupH does the talking for us. The product is available off the shelf from NORD Australia with very short lead times and comes with stainless steel shafts and food grade gear lubricant.  This high-quality product remains unrivalled and we are so pleased with its performance relating to this application,” Richards concludes.
