NORD Drivesystems presents a range of industrial gear units for conveyor and bulk materials handling applications.

Specially developed according to the tried-and-tested Unicase principle, the NORD industrial gear units are available in various options and modules, enabling easy configuration of compact solutions for both conveyor belt and bucket elevator drive units.

For instance, NORD offers identical gear unit rockers, frames and modules for both conveyor belts and bucket elevators. This standardisation guarantees quality, reduces the number of components, simplifies inventory and ensures rapid availability to customers.

NORD industrial gear units are suitable for horizontal as well as vertical applications.
