Surface treatment for drive solutions offers enhanced corrosion resistance

Nord Drivesystems provides a wide range of drive solutions made of aluminium for the packaging industry. For almost all drive components, the company also offers the nsd tupH surface treatment. This makes the drive technology particularly corrosion-resistant and robust.

With nsd tupH, Nord Drivesystems offers a special treatment, which makes drive surfaces with aluminium housings particularly corrosion-resistant, similar to stainless steel. This is 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.

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.

“The nsd tupH surface treatment has already proven its quality in numerous practical applications in food and pharmaceutical companies”, says Jörg Niermann, head of marketing.

“In a company that processes seafood and shellfish, the technology has proven itself under especially hard conditions,” he continues. Here, salt water takes its particular toll on the drive components so that the previous cast-iron versions had to be replaced after one or two years. The nsd tupH-protected units, however, have been used for a long time now.
