Dodge Couplings

Uniquely engineered to damp vibration, accommodate shaft misalignment, and eliminate unexpected downtime.

Dodge has manufactured couplings for over 100 years, earning a reputation for developing innovative products that lower customers’ total cost of ownership. The Dodge coupling product line can offer a solution to almost any customer need. Whether the need is an elastomeric or metallic design, Dodge can provide a coupling with the potential to increase torque capacity, accommodate shaft misalignment, extend life, and put an end to unexpected downtime.

Combining Dodge coupling products with the overall ABB, Baldor®, and Dodge product lines, customers can order complete system packages containing a variety of designs, sizes, and options. The large product offering allows pump, conveyor, and fan users to have a drive, motor, coupling, gearbox, bearings, and conveyor pulley from the same manufacturer. This ability to provide a single source system design with the product breadth and depth of Dodge is an advantage shared with no other manufacturer in the marketplace.
