    Drive Solutions with Special Surface Treatment

For almost all its drive components Nord Drivesystems offers the nsd tupH surface treatment. This special treatment makes drive surfaces with aluminium housings particularly corrosion-resistant, similar to stainless steel. It’s not a coating, but a treatment based on an electrolytic process that creates a protective layer that is permanently bonded to the substrate material. So nothing can detach or flake off. Drives with the nsd tupH surface treatment are largely resistant to acids and alkalis, and easy to clean. The advantages of the nsd tupH treatment compared with stainless steel are a more competitive price and availability for a larger product range. The aluminium housings also provide better thermal conductivity and ensures lower temperatures in the gear unit/motor components and are lighter than stainless steel.

Further applications and industries

NORD offers nsd tupH for a wide range of industries. The surface treatment is not only optimally suited for the use in hygienically critical areas in the food, beverage, packaging, pharmaceutical or chemical industry, but also for applications in extremely humid environments, for example in car wash facilities or waterworks, or in maritime and coastal areas.
