Dodge Type EXL Wins Gold

Baldor Electric is proud to announce that the Type EXL mounted tapered roller bearing is a gold award winner in Plant Engineering Magazine’s 2012 Product of the Year Awards competition. The Type EXL took top honors over similar products within the same category.

The Type EXL roller bearing provides both misalignment and expansion capability incorporated into a split, ductile iron housing with industry standard Type E mounting dimensions. The bearing also features the new XTS triple lip sealing system, which is two times more effective than any other mounted bearing seal in the market today.

“It’s gratifying to receive this kind of recognition from plant and maintenance engineers who use these products on a day to day basis,” said Matt Frady, Dodge Roller Bearing Product Manager. “We’re proud to offer a product that is setting a standard for reliability and maintenance-free performance.”

The Product of the Year Award was established to honor the most innovative and useful products introduced to the industrial plant engineering market. The Baldor·Dodge Type EXL bearing was selected as a finalist by a panel of plant engineers and then the magazine turned it over to the readers to determine the best of the best.

Winners of the 25th annual Plant Engineering Product of the Year Awards Competition are featured in the April edition of the magazine HERE.
