Baldor Electric Company July 28, 2014
Baldor Electric Company’s Dodge HT500 synchronous drive system delivers high torque, low maintenance and potential energy savings with less overhung load than V-belts. HT500 belts also offer longer life in wet/oily environments than rubber made products. The companion to HT500 sprockets is the Baldor-Dodge HT500 high torque synchronous belt (8mm & 14mm metric pitch). The HT500 belt is made with polyurethane for harsh environment resistance and carbon fiber cords, providing higher torque carrying capacity than commonly known aramid fiber tensile cords made belts. A full line of stock, compact, power-dense TAPER-LOCK® sprockets, fin fan QD* sprockets, and Minimum Plain Bore (MPB) sprockets will also be available from stock. Baldor’s made-to-order capability includes split-tapered options as well as a variety of tooth count, materials and plating to satisfy the requirements of any application. Baldor’s sprockets are made with the modified curvilinear tooth profile for 8mm and 14mm pitches.
