This is a BRAND NEW High Speed CLUTCH MOTOR for industrial sewing machines.
The motor is 1/2 H.P. 400 Watts THREE Phase 220 Volts 3450 R.P.M.
This High Speed Clutch Motor comes complete with a motor pulley and mounting bolts. Just bolt it onto your table using the included table bolts.
This motor is High Speed (3450 RPM) so it is used on Single Needle or Overlock Machines. It is NOT recommended for Walking Foot, Double Needle, or Blindstitch machines which should have LOW SPEED motors (1725 R.P.M.)
This 220 VOLT Three Phase Motor is generally used in industrial applications where machines are set up in lines and plugged into each other. The heavy duty electrical supply permits this motor to start up with no high voltage capacitor. This motor comes WITHOUT a wire harness or plug because there are so many differently configured plugs and switches. Some applications have fused switch boxes and others have re-settable circuit breakers. This motor is intended as a REPLACEMENT for an existing installation. If this motor is to be used in a NEW installation then proper plugs, wiring, and switch boxes must be ADDED.
Unfortunately many sewing machine dealers use High Speed motors on Walking Foot Machines. This is just NOT a good way to go! It forces the dealer to put a very small pulley on the motor to slow it down so the surface area of contact between the V Belt and the pulley is very small. This makes the machine hard to control and very difficult to run SLOWLY.
This Motor is the Highest Quality that we have ever seen and is ISO 9002 Certified.
The center Bolt & Nut assembly allows for precise up & down positioning of the motor for perfect belt tension.
This highest quality Clutch Motor uses standard #6203DS bearings that replace easily so that this motor will give you many years of service.
There are many different Quality Levels for this type of Clutch Motor. You may find a very low priced motor that seems like a good value. But be careful! The most important quality related aspect of a clutch motor is the COPPER WIRE WINDINGS. These windings must be completely and uniformly coated with insulation or the windings will short out or overheat. This will result in a loss of power or complete failure. And it will almost always happen on a very hot day! The problem for the buyer is that it is impossible to tell with a visual inspection what kind of copper winding job the motor factory did.
