Baldor has shipped thousands and thousands of AC and DC servo motors, drives, and controls to many diverse applications throughout the world. It all began in 1952 when Baldor shipped its first reliable adjustable speed control, and in 1983 Baldor began shipping easy to use servo controls and that tradition continues today.
Baldor’s philosophy is to make control set up very fast, and easy, and quick to implement. This is accomplished by either a simple keypad, or through set-up wizards and your PC.
Baldor products help increase productivity, improve quality, work hard and provide solutions for your application needs.
