Efficient drive solutions for beverage bottling Customised, energy-saving, hygienic, user-friendly

NORD-DuoDrive.jpg The innovative and patented DuoDrive geared motor reaches outstanding system efficiency (NORD DRIVESYSTEMS).

Automatic bottling and conveyor systems in beverage and liquid food production set high requirements for energy efficiency, operational reliability, wash-down-capability and corrosion protection. As one of the world’s leading full-range suppliers for mechanical and electronic drive technology, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS knows the industry’s requirements and provides efficient, hygienic and reliable solutions for bottling and conveyor technology in beverage lines.


Easy to clean, energy-saving operation, high precision positioning, low operating costs: Drive systems used in automatic bottling systems for the beverage industry must reconcile various requirements – just NORD DRIVESYSTEMS’ area of expertise. The family company from North Germany is the global leader in drive technology and provides customised drive solutions with high energy efficiency, user-friendly plug & play technology, smooth surfaces and long service life.


DuoDrive geared motor: High energy efficiency, low operating costs

The innovative and patented DuoDrive geared motor integrates a high-efficiency IE5+ synchronous motor into the housing of a single-stage helical gear unit, and with a system efficiency of up to 92% achieves one of the highest efficiencies on the market in this power class. Very high system efficiency is also achieved in the partial load range. The constant motor torque over a wide speed range allows for consistent version reduction and reduction of operating costs. Together with the simple plug-and-play commissioning, this results in a significant reduction in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in comparison with existing drive systems. The unventilated, wash-down design with smooth surfaces meets the most stringent hygiene requirements and ensures optimum cleaning.

NORDAC ON/ON+ is a compact and Intelligent frequency inverter for decentralised use


 NORDAC ON/ON+: Decentralised frequency inverter with integrated Ethernet interface

Beverage bottling is an area where the demand for decentralised drive technology is on the rise. NORD offers an optimal solution with the smart NORDAC ON/ON+ frequency inverter. NORDAC ON/ON+ covers power ranges up to 2.2 kW and is characterised by an integrated Ethernet interface (ProfiNET, EtherNET IP and EtherCAT can be set per parameter), full plug-in capability and a very compact design. Decentralised inverters are ideally suited for integration into bottling and conveyor systems and thus save space as well the extensive motor cable wiring required for centralised frequency inverters.

The nsd tupH surface treatment provides an outstanding anti-corrosion treatment for drive components in wash-down-optimised cast aluminium housings for the beverage industry.


nsd tupH surface treatment: An alternative to stainless steel

The nsd tupH surface treatment is available for DuoDrive as well as for NORDAC ON/ON+. Thanks to a special method, the surface is made corrosion-resistant and harder and makes aluminium behave like stainless steel with regard to corrosion protection. This is not a coating, but a surface treatment that creates a protective layer which is permanently bonded to the substrate material. So nothing can detach or flake off. 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. nsd tupH treatment is available for most of NORD modular drive systems made from aluminium.

With approx. 4,700 employees today, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has developed, produced and sold drive technology since 1965, and is one of the leading global full-service providers in the industry. In addition to standard drives, NORD delivers application-specific concepts and solutions for special requirements such as energy-saving drives or explosion-protected systems. In the 2021 financial year, annual sales amounted to 870 million Euros. NORD has 48 subsidiaries in 36 countries and further sales partners in more than 50 countries. They provide technical support, local stocks, assembly centres and customer service. NORD develops and produces a wide range of drive solutions for more than 100 industries, gear units for torques from 10 Nm up to over 282 kNm, supplies electric motors in the power range of 0.12 kW to 1,000 kW, and supplies the required power electronics with frequency inverters of up to 160 kW. Inverter solutions are available for conventional control cabinet installations as well as for decentralised, fully integrated drive units.
