Cost reductions thanks to standardisation

Cost reductions thanks to standardisation
Different gear units and motor types, sizes, options and gear ratios often result in a large variety of drive versions, which is a considerable cost factor. A reduction in the number of variants can result in optimised processes and costs. The LogiDrive from NORD DriveSystems standardised IE4 geared motor versions are the solution for intralogistics.
