Baldor introduces the Baldor-Dodge vertical gear motor

March 14, 2015 - Baldor Electric Company announces a new addition to our gear reducer product offering, the Baldor-Dodge Vertical Gear Motor. The Vertical Gear Motor offers a cost-effective alternative to the common low speed vertical pump drive technologies, which utilize large, high pole count vertical motors or a combination of horizontal motor with a right angle gear reducer. The Vertical Gear Motor is built on a standard low pole count induction motor platform utilizing proven, highly efficient Dodge planetary gearing. This results in a smaller, lighter, highly efficient drive package.
