The new Laguna 12|16 Lathe is a revolution when it comes to mini lathes. For the size of a mini lathe, this lathe packs a big punch!
REVOLUTIONARY NEW CONTROL PRODUCES SUPERIOR TORQUE
Pulse Width Modulation efficiently delivers more torque at low- to mid-range speeds, minimizing RPM loss. PWM delivers power to a DC motor through a succession of voltage pulses rather than adjusting voltage or current. PWM vastly improves efficiency at low- to mid-range speeds and substantially decreases the loss of torque under load
HOW DOES PULSE WIDTH MODULATION DIFFER FROM STANDARD CONTROLLERS?
Typically a controller limits voltage or current to adjust the speed. This limitation results in less torque being available especially at low to mid-range speeds. The voltage not being used is converted to heat that can damage electrical components after prolonged use
