BMG’s integrated geared motors for efficiency

June 2021 Motion Control & Drives

BMG’s new Nord DuoDrive unit, an integrated geared unit that combines the recently launched Nord IE5+ synchronous motor and a single-stage helical gear unit, has been designed for optimum system efficiency.

“By installing the motor and the gear unit in a single housing, the lightweight DuoDrive offers many benefits, including high power density, low noise emissions and reduced installation space,” says Deon Crous, national product specialist, Electromechanical Drives division, BMG. “The launch of this new integrated system sets new energy efficiency standards in food and pharmaceutical production, as well as the intralogistics sector.

“Other important benefits of the new DuoDrive are fewer wearing parts, which reduces maintenance requirements and the simple commissioning of a complete solution via plug-and-play, which decreases the total cost of ownership compared to existing drive systems.

“This corrosion resistant unit has an advanced wash-down design and is suitable for safe use in hygiene-sensitive and harsh environments. Because this unit is easy to wash, cleaning costs are reduced.”

The DuoDrive system offers a high efficiency gear unit/motor combination and is an advance on Nord’s LogiDrive concept, where the IE5+ synchronous motor is combined with a bevel gear unit. As with all products in the portfolio, DuoDrive is compatible with Nord drive electronics and can be equipped with common hollow shaft dimensions (20 to 40 mm) and flange versions (B5 and B14) or a torque arm. Depending on specific requirements, Harting HAN connectors, M12 round plug connectors or direct wiring are provided for the motor connection. Other options include an encoder for feedback and holding brakes.

BMG’s team of technicians, with extensive experience in gearing, offers a technical advisory and support service throughout southern Africa, which is tailored to meet the precise specifications of contractors, designers and the end-user. Local assembly at BMG World in Johannesburg enables prompt delivery of drive systems and the quick availability of spare parts.
