The Nord Stockholm Factory
Nord recently unleashed the new Electro 4HP Hammer Action Portable Keyboard, handmade by Clavia in Sweden. The Electro 4HP is the youngest member of the Nord Electro family, other relatives include Nord’s range of stage pianos, synthesizers and organs.
Clavia have been kind enough to give us some insight into the magic that happens in their Stockholm factory.
It is within these walls that all Nord keyboards are made. The video shows the manufacturing process and stringent quality controls as a Nord Electro 4D is put together.
They have highlighted some of Nord’s unique practices and attention to detail throughout the manufacturing process. Such as the Heat Room, in which every Nord keyboard is placed once fully assembled. Once in the Heat Room, each keyboard is tested for 48 hours, running continuous CPU tests at 40 degrees centigrade to simulate the most challenging of stage environments.
