Reliability and avoidance of faults have ultimate priority for the operators of baggage handling systems. The breakdown of even a single system component results in a backlog, which means an unacceptable delay. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is thoroughly familiar with airport requirements and supplies drive solutions for a wide range of baggage handling applications .


All NORD system components are precisely matched to each other and ensure smooth operation. The gear units are extraordinarily robust, run very quietly and have a particularly long service life. The service- and maintenance-friendly help reduce standstill times and thus contribute to an increased efficiency and availability of the entire system.


The reliability and cost-efficiency of electronically controlled NORD conveyor drives have proven themselves at airports throughout the world. The systems combine high flexibility and tiered functional equipment with convenient operability. NORD drives ensure particularly high conveying speeds that are increasingly often required due to more stringent safety measures. The mechatronic NORD drive systems are based on 2-stage bevel gear motors with low weight and high efficiency. In combination with wall-mounted or motor-mounted frequency inverters, they form efficient drive systems. NORD also supplies the required cable connectors and interfaces to a variety of bus systems as well as the respective software.


The Modular NORD range of products enables complete drive solutions from a single source and reduces the number of versions. This enables the overall operating costs of the system to be kept low. With LogiDrive, NORD supplies standardised, high efficiency drive solutions especially for horizontal and inclined conveyors. LogiDrive solutions consist of a two stage bevel gear unit, an especially energy saving IE4 synchronous motor and a NORDAC LINK field distributor – a perfectly matched drive system for intralogistics and airport applications. IE4 synchronous motorsespecially develop their full potential for savings in partial-load and partial-speed ranges, which are particularly common in airport technology applications.


From design and commissioning to service and maintenance, NORD supports its customers in all phases of the project and supplies ultimate quality which meets international standards. Thousands of NORD drive units are already in operation throughout the world. The drive specialist from Bargteheide has equipped airports including Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Hamburg, as well as Ottawa, Johannesburg and Taipeh.


NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is recognised in the airport industry by well-known international consultants and operators such as the German Airport Technology & Equipment (GATE) , the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and the International Association of Baggage System Companies (IABSC).
