Baldor Electric Company has unveiled the Dodge HT500 synchronous drive system. The company says the motor delivers high torque, low maintenance, and potential energy savings with less overhung load than V-belts drives. Officials also said 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 sprockets are made with the modified curvilinear tooth profile for 8mm and 14mm pitches.
