Baldor releases new low cost metric frame motors

Baldor has released of an extensive range of metric frame IEC 3 phase AC motors targeted at the highly competitive general motor market in Australia.

Until now, Baldor has primarily targeted markets that prefer motors that deliver premium electrical efficiency and comply with the Australian MEPS 2005 High Efficiency standard.

The Baldor Super-E range has established a reputation for superior efficiency and reliability throughout user markets in Australia.

However, many applications and users do not require premium efficiency, and to cater for these situations, Baldor has introduced the MX Series IEC frame motors.

These motors comply with Australian MEPS 2006 minimum energy efficiency requirements, and deliver Government approved levels of efficiency at a highly ompetitive initial purchase price.

MX Series motors will be available ex-stock from Baldor’s Sydney and Melbourne warehouses and from major Baldor distributors throughout Australia and NZ.

The range includes two and four pole motors from 0.75kW to 313kW, 0.75kW to 250kW in 6 Pole, and 0.75 to 200kW in 8 Pole.

The modular design of the MX series motors allows for quick conversion from the standard B3 foot mounting to B5 flange mount or B14 face mount configurations.

Motors can be ordered with the appropriate mounting configuration or alternatively, customers can purchase a flange/face kit to change the configuration themselves.

Baldor MX motors are manufactured in aluminium housings up to 132 frame (approximately 7.5kW), while larger frames are all cast iron.

“The new MX series motors will make us very competitive in the general motor market,
which will allow us and our distributors to service current customers more comprehensively and will also allow us to penetrate new markets and gain new customers,” said Daniel Vera, managing director Baldor Australia.

“Baldor is one of the largest motor manufacturers in the world and together with our extensive range of AC and DC variable speed drives, Dodge geared products and industrial mounted bearings, and our innovative servo and motion control products, we are a major source of drive componentry and engineered solutions for industries throughout the world.”
