Baldor Electric Co.’s Dodge D-LAG use a natural rubber compound and the lagging is vulcanized for pulley bonding and strength.
Baldor Electric Co.’s Dodge D-LAG conveyor pulleys use a natural rubber compound that is 73% more resistant to wear than standard SBR rubber. By increasing lagging life, Baldor’s Dodge D-LAG conveyor pulleys will extend the operating life of both the conveyor pulley and conveyor belt. The lagging is 100% vulcanized for pulley bonding and strength, making it resistant to cuts and gouges. Two pulley styles are available: D-LAG heavy-duty drum pulleys are available from 10 in. to 24 in. in diameter; D-LAG MDX (mine duty extra) drum pulleys are available from 12 in. up to 24 in. diameter. Baldor’s D-LAG pulleys are designed with flexible end discs to eliminate weld fatigue under cyclical loads, while Dodge MDX pulleys feature an integral hub design that eliminates the welded hub.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
