NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will present drive functions for smart factories at the 2016 Hannover Messe exhibition, showcasing for example new approaches to condition monitoring and predictive maintenance as well as advanced autonomous control functions of the latest electronic drive units, which feature an integrated PLC.
Economical and simple solutions, especially those based on distributed drives, enable users to seize the potential of smart manufacturing and the Internet of Things. At the mechanical end of the product spectrum, the latest additions to the NORD gear line-up include single-stage helical inline gears primarily for use in pump, mixer, fan, and conveyor applications.
Industrial gear units in size 14 extend the existing program and allow for even more precise drive configurations in the high torque range. Honoring this year's Hannover Messe partner country, the USA, NORD Gear, the international group's US subsidiary, has dispatched staff with specialist know-how for this market to the exhibition stand.
The NORD Gear team has been supporting North American customers since 1979, offering manufacturing and assembly services as well as application-specific engineering.
