Overhead Conveyor Drives – Designed specifically to meet the needs of poultry and other meat processing applications, NORD's overhead conveyor drives feature heavy-duty construction and high-quality machined components. With high efficiency performance and low maintenance requirements, these drives have a very low total cost of ownership while providing clean and reliable operation in food processing plants around the world. Mounting flange and output shaft ensure an easy, drop-in fit with industry-standard footprints.
Key Advantages:
-High overhung load capacity
-QUADRALIP™ sealing system
-Spread bearing design with dry cavity for optimized oil leakage protection
-Low maintenance, long service life
-Gear efficiency up to 95%
-Three sizes available to accommodate a wide range of applications

Screw Conveyor Package – The NORD Screw Conveyor Package offers a cost-effective drive solution in a powerful, compact footprint. Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts, or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating the belted input systems provides for easier system maintenance, increased reliability, and superior drive performance.
Key Advantages:
-Reduced operation costs
-Large ratio range
-Direct drive motor options (Integral or C-face)
-No belt maintenance or belt guarding required
-Reduced parts / higher reliability / space savings
-Higher efficiency
-More direct torque transfer
