MapleSim Helps Reduce Development Time for ABB Crane Systems and Saves Money for its Customers

Millions of shipping containers pass through sea ports each year, carrying anything from machinery and auto parts to shoes, toys, and frozen food. At modern ports, containers are unloaded onto docks, and then moved to stacking yards where Automatic Stacking Cranes and Ship to Shore Cranes stack them until they are ready to be loaded onto trucks or train cars. Containers must be moved quickly and accurately without interference from other containers, cranes, or vehicles. Any delays reduce profitability for the port, especially at large ports that move thousands of containers each day.

NORD Drivesystems

Low-maintenance drives for food processing

Bargteheide – At the Anuga FoodTec exhibition in Cologne, Germany, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will present distributed drive concepts that meet the typical demands of the food industry. Variable-speed drives with IP66/IP69K ingress protection are suitable for processes that require regular cleaning with high-pressure steam jets. All components are manufactured in-house: gearboxes, smooth-surface motors, and frequency inverters. The nsd tupH anti-corrosion treatment gives the aluminum housings a smooth and durable surface. Even blows and scratches do not impair the corrosion resistance. Since no coating is applied but the surface itself is hardened, there can be no pollution of products or process media as for instance with chipping paint. The nsd tupH treatment is approved for food applications according to FDA Title 21 CFR 175.300. Trade show visitors will be able to see nsd tupH drives that have performed in a salty atmosphere for one year and were removed for demonstration purposes. In contrast to painted drives, these units have not corroded. Due to their superior resilience, nsd tupH drives require minimal maintenance and have a long service life. The comprehensive NORD gearbox program enables drive configurations exactly tailored to the particular demand while at the same time supporting an easy variant management.
