Baldor•Dodge® Raptor couplings feature a finite-element optimized winged elastomeric element design, providing longer driven equipment life and improved reliability. Raptor’s patented WingLock™ technology increases surface area at the most critical regions of the element, resulting in higher bond strength, improved fatigue resistance, and longer life than competitive urethane designs. A non-lubricated natural rubber element results in lower stiffness, improved vibration damping, and industry leading misalignment capabilities.
For reduced maintenance, the Raptor offers a split element for easy installation and replacement without moving or re-aligning connected equipment. Slotted clamp ring holes offer extra clearance for mounting hardware, resulting in a noticeably easier installation. Designed for drop-in interchangeability, Raptor couplings work in existing applications without any modifications.
