Baldor has a wide selection of high performance AC brushless servo motors, DC servo motors and stainless steel servo motors for the motion control industry.

Baldor has been leading the way in energy efficient industrial motors since the 1920's - has been supplying the industry with adjustable speed controls since 1952, and has been supplying servo and motion control since 1983.

Baldor goes beyond the industry standard with innovations to provide reliable performance, while exceeding customer expectations. Some examples of Baldor firsts:


Baldor Inverter / Vector Motor

Inverter/Vector motors are equipped with a superior insulation system designed to comply with NEMA MG-1 part 31 for inverter power. The motors available from stock range from 1/3 Hp to 1000 Hp. Designed for a variety of industrial applications where full torque is needed from base speed down to zero speed. Applications include conveyors, pumps, fans, metal processing, compressors, test stands, material handling, packaging equipment, printing presses, and others requiring exact speeds and positioning.


Baldor Brake Motors

Baldor's line of brake motors are available in totally enclosed fan cooled, open drip proof, or explosion proof designs, in either single or three phase. Stock ratings are available from 1/4 HP through 30 HP. These motors use a mechanical spring set brake with a manual release. Brake motors may be used on machine tools, conveyors, door operators, speed reducers, hoists, or any application requiring quick stops and positive holds.


Baldor Premium Efficient

Super-E Motors are designed to conserve energy over extended time periods. These premium efficiency designs are available in both Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled and Open Drip Proof construction. All three phase motors are Inverter Ready per NEMA Standard MG1, Part 31.4.4.2. This means the motors in 230 and 460 volts meet NEMA's corona inception voltage requirements, under this Standard, and can withstand peak voltages of up to 1600 volts. Motors having premium efficiency are also available in single phase designs.


Baldor Speed Reducers

Baldor Speed Reducers are available with ratings up to 25 HP. Our Right Angle Speed Reducers feature heavy-duty cast iron construction, chill cast bronze gears, precision ground worms. All units are pre-lubricated for life with Klubersynth UH1-6-460 food grade (H1) oil. 900 Series speed reducers are dimensionally interchangeable with many other worm gear speed reducers.

Baldor also offers our 1000 Series in-line heavy-duty helical gear drives. Models include double & triple reduction units in foot or flange mounted arrangements. Available in ratios from 1.5:1 to 250:1 and are also pre-lubricated with Klubersynth UH1-6-460 oil. All Baldor Speed Reducers are available from stock at any one of our 35 North American warehouses.


Baldor Explosion Proof Motor

Baldor's Explosion-proof motors are ideal for a wide variety of applications where hazardous fumes or dust may be present. The motors are available in three phase and single phase with ratings, in stock, from 1/4 HP through 300 HP.
