Baldor signs deal with AWB Bearings


Baldor Australia and AWB Bearings have begun what is hoped will be a long-term relationship to distribute a wide range of products.

This includes Baldor electric motors and drives, Dodge mounted industrial bearings, and Dodge Mechanical Power Transmission Couplings.

AWB currently has nine locations in NSW, Qld and WA, servicing a wide range of industrial, agricultural and mining industry clients.

Mr Daniel Vera, Managing Director of Baldor Australia said: “This adds excellent exposure for Baldor and our products in regions we currently do not have direct representation.

“Customers want fast access to quality product no matter where they are located. Down-time cost money, and prompt access to Baldor products opens up new markets for Baldor and AWB.”

Each AWB branch will stock popular products and sizes, including the newly released Baldor MX Series AC motors. M X motors comply with Australian energy requirements MEPS standard efficiency and deliver a cost effective and robust drive solution for general industrial applications.

The extensive range of MX Series motors includes 3 phase 2, 4, 6, and 8 pole designs to offer best-fit speed selection, plus the option of B3 foot, B5 flange, or B14 face mount and B3/B5 or B3/B14 combination mounting. Standard stock sizes include a choice of reduced weight aluminium housing from 0.75 to 7.5kW, or robust cast iron housings from 0.75 to 90kW. Single phase motors are also available from 0.09 to .55kW.

AWB branches will also extensively stock Dodge adaptor mount pillow block style bearings.

Dodge 360 degree concentric adaptor mount systems provide fast 15 minute fit and removal without shaft damage, even after extensive operational time, reducing down time to a minimum and lowering maintenance costs by eliminating the cost of shaft rehabilitation and the frustration of bearings frozen to the shaft.

Dodge bearings also incorporate patented sealing systems to exclude contamination and maintain lubrication quality. Dodge ISN series double-row spherical roller bearings are dimensionally interchangeable with SN500 standard bearings and are available in shaft sizes of 30 to 140mm. Dodge Grip-Tight ball bearings are available in shaft sizes from 17 to 85mm and ½ to 3½ inches. All Dodge bearings are full assembled, packed with grease and sealed ready for shaft mounting.

Dodge also manufactures an extensive range of shaft couplings to cater for virtually any application in bore sizes to 13inch/330mm and alignment tolerance up to 4 degrees.

The range includes many designs from elastomeric element and tyre couplings, to gear and chain style couplings through to Grid-Lign grid couplings for high torque applications.
