NORD white paper: Corrosion protection for high loads

With its unique NORD nsd tupH surface protection, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers corrosion protection normally associated with stainless steel. It can be combined with flexible modular drive products. The drive solutions are available in several sizes as worm gear, parallel gear, parallel shaft gear or bevel gear units, completely available with smooth motor and respective drive electronics. The innovative nsd tupH surface treatment from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS makes aluminium drives as corrosion resistant as the stainless steel versions.

In the food industry, plant and machinery as well as the drive technology that is used must be efficiently protected against dirt, moisture, spray water and aggressive media. However, painted systems are prone to even minor damage and do not offer permanent protection. Drive units made from stainless steel are relatively expensive. nsd tupH corrosion protection treatment from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is an economical alternative for aluminium drive housings that considerably prolongs the service life of the installed components in harsh environments. A NORD DRIVESYSTEMS’ white paper on corrosion-resistant drive solutions for hygienic production can now be downloaded. nsd tupH treatment is available for most of the NORD modular drive system from aluminium, which includes various gear unit series, smooth motors and decentralised drive electronics.


Suitable for many industrial applications

As the drives’ surfaces are exposed to scratches and impacts in industrial environments, even high-quality anti-corrosion coatings do not provide effective protection. Once the surface has been damaged, it is often infiltrated by corrosion and also repairs do not permanently help. With nsd tupH treatment, the surface is significantly more robust than a paint coating, and even slight impairment remains limited to the damaged area. The nsd tupH drives are not only suitable for hygienically sensitive applications in the food sector but also for various applications in process and pharmaceutical industries. They are typically used on conveyor belts, pumps, mixers or agitators, but also in water and sewage plants and car wash facilities.



With more than 4,000 employees, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has developed, produced and sold drive technology for over 50 years, 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 2018 financial year, annual sales amounted to € 700 million NORD now has subsidiaries and sales partners in 98 countries worldwide. The extensive sales and service network guarantees optimal availability, enabling short delivery times and customer-oriented service. NORD produces a very diverse range of drives for torques from 10 Nm up to over 250 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.
