New from Warco
WM 280V VARIABLE SPEED LATHE

Warco has introduced a new upgraded version of the longstanding Warco WM 280 series of lathes - the Warco WM 280V.

This machine features uprated specification throughout, now with an all new and improved inverter drive system. The WM 280V features Delta inverter drive with an AC induction motor. It gives the benefit of quiet operation throughout.

The motor is more powerful - with a 50% increase from 1kw to 1.5kw (1500w), featuring the ability to go as low as 30 rpm - ideal for thread cutting, with great torque in the low speed range. It is fitted with an overload clutch to the feed shaft.

This lathe still has the full range of features of the previous model (WM 280VF) - including power cross feed, thread dial indicator, digital rev counter and 700mm between centres. Available in metric. Imperial version is still available.
