Baldor Electric now offers customers the widest variety of permanent magnet and wound field industrial DC motors in the world. Both IEC and NEMA frame motors are available from stock from 1/50 to 500 HP, and Baldor meets specific application needs with custom-designed motors up to 3,000 HP.

While other manufacturers have left the DC motor market, ABB and Baldor continue to invest in DC product development and U.S. manufacturing. A complete offering of Baldor round body DC motors has the same shaft height and mounting dimensions as competitors motors, making the Baldor product an easy drop-in replacement. Baldor also offers a full range of laminated frame DC motors, including explosion proof designs.
