Incredible Speed Range 100 – 5,000 RPM
Perfect for a wide variety of projects from small pens to large bowls and platters.
Delivers high torque right from the start – making it well suited for low-speed turning. No belts to change – full power output is available at the spindle.
The computer analyzes (100s of times per second) both the spindle position and the power required to maintain a given speed.
As cutting tool pressure is increased the drive adds more power.
The DVR™ (Digital Variable Reluctance) is a simple motor – the complexity is in the electronics. It has few mechanical parts with no belts, pulleys – the motor and lathe machine headstock are a fully integrated whole. There are no brushes or magnets and only one set of very robust industrial grade stator windings and we stand by our technology offering a comprehensive warranty of 2 years on the motor and electronics.
