ABB introduces Passport, a new selection program for Dodge mechanical power transmission products. A Web based tool utilizing an intuitive process, Passport quickly guides users through the selection of Torque-Arm II and Motorized Torque-Arm shaft mounted reducers, as well as belted drive products.

Passport takes both novice and experts, with or without knowledge of Dodge products, through a step-by-step process helping them identify the reducer and accessories that best meet their needs. Product offerings and units of measure are tailored to the users’ local market.

“This user-friendly tool also offers customers a path to create an application-based gearing package,” says Joe Maloney, Vice President of Dodge International Sales. “Passport offers all of the components, including the reducer, motor mount, accessories, mechanical drives, and motors to create a complete packaged solution. This tool will be especially helpful to bulk material handling customers, as well as those with air handling applications.”

After the selection process is complete, Passport delivers a comprehensive summary that includes part numbers, supporting performance data, engineering drawings and links to literature and additional resources.

Future Passport capabilities will incorporate additional Dodge mechanical power transmission products, as well as offering an application based approach to develop packaged product solutions for a wider range of common industrial applications.
