Servo Controls

In January 2011, Baldor was purchased by ABB including the Mint Motion products and Servo Drives. Baldor motion products are available under ABB and will functionally remain unchanged. For most, the changes now include ABB branding. Three products will maintain the original Baldor branding including MintDrive, FlexDrive and Flex+Drive. Customers stand to benefit from a more complete product line and the ABB brand values, globally.
