The definitive midi-lathe, Laguna’s REVO 12|16 encapsulates the prestige of Laguna in a small package. Featuring a Pulse Width Modulation system motor to maintain consistent torque at any speed, one step cam-action belt change with magnetic door housing, and a luxury banjo w/45º chamfered edge. The 1216 controls the 1hp DC motor using pulse width modulation. A big problem with DC motor control is torque at low speeds, and you will find many MIDI lathes with the lowest speed of 250RPM and higher because of this. This is because the cost effect controllers introduce resistance into the voltage to limit the power, which reduces the speed but also reduces the torque at the same rate. PWM will deliver full torque across the entire speed range. This allows for tremendous torque at low speeds which is helpful when roughing and precision work. This also allows for outboard turning up to a 16” bowl on a mid-sized lathe.
