Dodge Power Transmission Components
For decades, the Dodge brand of power transmission products has advanced the standard for progress in industry – affecting and improving the way the world transmits power.
Clutches and Brakes
Continuing their tradition of developing products that improve the performance and efficiency of your operation, Dodge is proud to offer their Torque Tamer mechanical clutches, as well as a wide range of electrical clutches and brakes.
Uniquely engineered to dampen vibration, accommodate shaft misalignment, and eliminate unexpected downtime.
Dodge has manufactured couplings for over 100 years and has earned a reputation for developing innovative products that lower customers’ total cost of ownership.
The Dodge coupling product line can offer a solution to almost any customer need. Whether the need is an elastomeric or metallic design, Dodge can provide a coupling with the potential to increase torque capacity, accommodate shaft misalignment, eliminate lubrication, extend life, improve application efficiency, and put an end to unexpected downtime.
Combining Dodge coupling products with the overall ABB – Baldor Electric – Dodge product lines, customers can order complete system packages containing a variety of designs, sizes, and options. The large product offering allows pump, conveyor, and fan users to have a drive, motor, coupling, gearbox, bearings, and conveyor pulley from the same manufacturer. The ability to provide a single source system design with the product breadth and depth of Dodge is an advantage shared with no other manufacturer in the marketplace.
Essential elements of this power transmission cycle are Dodge mechanical drive components: V-belt drives, synchronous drives and roller chain drives. These rugged products not only connect one driven shaft to another, but they isolate shock load and vibration, accepts minor misalignments and synchronize movement between shafts.
Dodge V-belt drives are quiet, high-quality, low-cost products that require very little maintenance. They have the ability to slip upon overload, thus protecting more expensive equipment from load surges.
Dodge synchronous belt drives require no lubrication. They provide a positive engagement between a toothed belt and a toothed sprocket, and are offered with curvilinear, modified curvilinear, and trapezoidal tooth profiles.
Dodge chain drives are compact, economical and easy to install. Capable of operating in high-temperature environments, they provide no slip with no special tensioning and offer the same efficiency advantages as synchronous belt drives.
All Dodge sheaves and sprockets are readily available over a wide range of speed ratios and can be supplemented with our complete offering of Dodge bushings, hubs, belts and accessories.
