• Aluminum rotor die casting machines designed to eliminate casting porosity for superior rotor bar and end ring integrity

• A free floating squirrel cage for copper bar rotors that will not fail from expansion and contraction

• The Baldor•Reliance flagship Enduraseal insulation system, where every winding is given an immersion test per NEMA MG1, Part 20.18.1

• Mechanically, Baldor provides a superior patented PLS bearing lubrication system that positively lubricates when the motor is in any position and has multiple grease relief locations preventing over-greasing which leads to a majority of antifriction bearing failures.

• Energy Efficient - Baldor takes great pride in standard designs that typically exceed industry norms for custom designed high efficiency motors. This did not just happen. Baldor's high efficiency designs are the result of engineering excellence, years of field experience, R&D testing and acclaimed dedication to leadership in energy efficiency.
