    Default WTB 1.1 kw 2800 rmp 3 phase motor

    I have a lathe for which I need a 1.1kw / 1.5hp motor or perhaps 2 hp.
    I need to run it off a VFD so delta connection is a must and 2 pole will give me the lathes full speed range
    Preferably Perth or within driving distance.
    Thank you Mark

    I have a 2.5HP Electromechanica (Italian) motor with a 21mm shaft in my shed that is delta convertible.
    If the excessive power worries you then program the VFD to limit the current to the motor.
    If you only have a 1.5kw VFD you can still use it and limit the motor current
    Unfortunately it is flange mounted but if you needed to it would be dead easy to weld up a foot mount for it
    PM me if you are interested

    Thanks Bob I'm sure its a good motor, but I'm hoping for a foot mount.
    I have a lot of work to do already and one more job is one too many.
    Thank you Mark

    Hi Mark, possibly have a couple of motors for you, I know one was set up to run off a VFD, but not sure of the rating/rpm as the plate is damaged/missing, if it's of any help to you.
