Bargteheide – NORD DRIVESYSTEMS manufactures permanently corrosion-resistant drives by means of the nsd tupH sealed surface conversion system. Aluminum drives are thereby given a smooth, ultra-hard surface that, in contrast to paint, is unaffected by blows or scratches. The drives are tested and proven in applications with a maritime atmosphere. Previous to that, they have proven their resilience against blistering per ASTM D714, corrosion per ASTM D610-08, and scribe per ASTM D1654-08 according to DIN EN ISO 2409. Additionally, ASTM D3170 Gravelometer test showed absolutely no loss of adhesion or chipping. The ASTM B117-09 salt spray test according to DIN EN ISO 9227 produced no corrosion even after 2,000 hours.

At the SPS IPC Drives Eplan Experience will be launched: a new knowledge-driven international programme introduced by Eplan that aims to optimise engineering efficiency. By making engineering practices more efficient it will lead to specific and clear competitive advantages such as strategic innovation management through a high-performing IT environment; shorter time to market; optimal resource management; and greater international competitiveness.
Morgan Advanced Materials announces the development of a groundbreaking new capability of brazing carbon fibre, ceramics, composites, or other engineered materials directly to a titanium honeycomb. This technique brings together the best qualities of both components, ensuring a final material that is strong, lightweight, and impact- and heat-resistant.
Many steps are necessary to make chocolate from cocoa beans. During this process, ingredients and mixtures in various states remain in near-continuous motion for hours and days on end, which requires reliable drive systems. In Zotter Schokoladen’s factory in Southeast Austria, the durability and fail-safe operation of these drives is doubly significant: firstly, smooth operation ensures top quality of the final product. Secondly, the production line is always open to thousands of visitors who should of course not witness any malfunctions. For years now, the facility has been using geared motors from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS for conveying, mixing and pumping tasks.
