Baldor Electric Company announces an addition to its coupling product offering - the QD bushed Para-Flex coupling. The QD flange design complements the company’s Taper-Lock and bored-to-size style flanges. The QD flanges are available from stock and accommodate Baldor-Dodge Para-Flex elements. The line is available in sizes PX50 through PX200, with torque ratings through 82,500 in-lbs. Para-Flex QD flanges offer greater bore capacity, allowing customers to save money by downsizing their coupling selections. Like the Taper-Lock bushing, the QD bushing allows for easy installation and removal with minimal shaft damage, reducing overall replacement costs.
