Drive-based solutions improve operational efficiency and machine safety

Getriebebau NORD – the world’s leading manufacturers of drive technology for mechanical and electronic solutions – is represented exclusively in Southern Africa by BMG.

NORTH DRIVE SYSTEMSin partnership with BMG, will be present at Electra Mining 2022, which will be held at Nasrec in Johannesburg, from September 5 to 9.

Getriebebau NORD – the world’s leading manufacturer of drive technology for mechanical and electronic solutions – is represented exclusively in Southern Africa by BMG.

“Our booth at this year’s event (Hall 6, Booth K26) will showcase a range of NORD products, including geared motors, motors, industrial gearboxes, variable frequency drives, motor starters and inverters. frequency converter for decentralized drive control”, says Deon Crous, National Product Specialist, NORD Drive Systems, BMG’s electromechanical drives division. “The The NORD range includes- optimal drive configurations to ensure high mechanical speed control performance for specific applications, in almost any industry.

“BMG’s electro-mechanical team – committed to ensuring that every mine and plant runs safely and efficiently – works closely with NORD DRIVESYSTEMS, to offer continuous supply and support of a wide range of drive components. ‘engineering.

“BMG’s team of technicians backs the NORD range with an advisory and technical assistance service, which is tailored to meet the precise specifications of contractors, designers and the end user. Local assembly at BMG World in Johannesburg enables rapid delivery of drive systems and rapid availability of spare parts.

The show will present a new range of NORD MAXXDRIVE®-XT industrial gearboxes and Industrie 4.0 NORD predictive maintenance systems.

MAXXDRIVE-XT industrial gear units, which offer safe solutions for torques up to 282,000 Nm, can be mounted directly or with an IEC motor mount. NORD drive concepts for elevators also offer options for backstops to prevent material backflow, as well as auxiliary drives with freewheel couplings and rotary encoders for maintenance operations. This system has been enhanced with an application-optimized two-stage bevel gearbox.

Custom explosion-proof motors and geared motors are used to minimize the risk of flammable dust explosions in bucket conveyor applications.

BMG’s NORD predictive maintenance solutions provide fast, efficient and comprehensive assessment of analog and digital data to improve operational efficiency and machine safety. The intelligent PLC of NORD drive technology forms the basis for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.

BMG specialists use predictive maintenance as a methodical continuation of condition maintenance, with the main objective of proactively maintaining machinery and equipment and detecting operational changes. The NORD status-oriented maintenance system replaces traditional time-based maintenance to improve the performance of the gearbox, electric motor and frequency converter, for increased efficiency of the entire installation, as well as a reduction in break time. The digitization of training technology increases the added value that our customers derive from training data. This is especially the case in drive systems in demanding production environments, where industrial gearbox installations are typically used in critical applications and their failure can cause serious damage. For example, in mining, wastewater, intralogistics and the food industry, as well as in general heavy-duty applications.

An important advantage of this system is that it offers reliable data analysis, rather than just reading the data. Pre-processing results or complete data can optionally be transmitted to a peripheral device, from where the data of all subsystems is managed and evaluated. This information is then available as pre-selected and edited smart data for further use and clear visualization.

NORD modular drives – designed for reliability, energy efficiency, low noise levels, long life and low maintenance – are used in applications where frequent gear changes are essential and where a sequence of motion specifically defined is required. These systems are easy to expand or upgrade, using a minimum of different component types and sizes.

BMG’s NORD range includes drives suitable for torques from 10 Nm to over 250 kNm, electric motors in the power range from 0.12 kW to 1,000 kW and frequency converters with the required power electronics up to 160 kW. Inverter solutions are available for conventional control cabinet installations, as well as for decentralized and fully integrated drive units.

NORD’s decentralized technology, which integrates mechanical drive components and electronic components into compact units, provides highly efficient and reliable customized drive solutions that reduce operating and maintenance costs.

Decentralized drive technology – an alternative to control cabinet installations – incorporates variable frequency drives that are installed close to the motor or mounted directly to the geared motor, to improve productivity in many applications, including conveyor technology and intralogistics.

This stand will be animated by a team of technical experts.
