Drive Solution for the Beverage Industry
Conveyor belts for bottles are often used in the beverage industry. To operate them in a particularly energy efficient manner, Nord Drivesystems has developed a special drive solution: In the patented DuoDrive geared motor concept, an unventilated IE5+ synchronous motor was integrated into a single-stage helical gear unit.
The IE5+ motor operates highly efficiently in itself and exceeds the highest defined efficiency class (IE5). The integration into the gear unit results in additional optimisations by eliminating interfaces, some wear-prone parts and also installation space.
In a trade fair model the drive specialist pits the DuoDrive against a customary IE3 asynchronous motor with bevel gear unit. “The geared motor was able to achieve an increase in efficiency of up to 50 percent”, reports Jörg Niermann, Head of Marketing.
