Micro Motor Jewellery
Rotary micro motor system for drilling, grinding, sanding, polishing and de-burring in jewellery and industrial industries. The MAX FORCE Rotary System is an excellent quality machine at a very reasonable price. This unit is very popular in Jewellery workshops as a good workhorse. This fixed straight hand piece is ideal for any deburring or polishing job. This tools has constant variable speed from 10,000 to 50,000rmp so ideal for many applications from drilling and burring jewellery to polishing plastics and resin.

This type of Micromotor system machine is new technology and now is much better than air micro pencil grinders as they have variable speed as allow high torque at low speeds. Also simple electric plug. They are similar to the pendant motor or flexible shaft machine but they are much quieter and no vibration also having an electrical cable rather than a rotating flexible shaft so less wearing parts. Many people use Dremel or Proxxon style machines but this offer small light weight hand pieces with a foot control, Dremels are known to burn out with over use. This rotary tool is made with industry use rather than hobbyist in mind.
The HPM-B1 carbon brush (DC) micro-motor is the same as included in the rotary handpiece type C-HPM-B1. It is compatible with the Diprofil mini polishing/filing machines type FMR/D5, FMR/D10, FMR/D15 and with the transverse polishing machine type FMV/D. It can be controlled by both power units type DPU-3 and TPU-20.
I have a Micro motor as well as a pendant drill, I use it under themicroscope, the advantage is that it keeps up its torque at slowspeeds and can be set to run at a particular speed and switched onand off by a footpedal. It is much quieter than a pendant drill. Istill use my pendant drill for jobs that need more power though.
You can drill with a micro motor if you get the special drill bitsthat have a 3/32 shaft, however if you have a lot of drill bits thathave various shaft sizes, you need to use a #30 handpiece or onethat is similar.
When doing on-the spot repairs at the market stalI, a tiny 12 Volthobbyshop micromotor (about AUS$30) running off a car battery (thesame power source for my desk lamp and plating solution) was greatfor what it could do. A bit lacking in torque but very eager at highRPM! A good compliment to my treadle powered work head that did thedrilling and polishing.
If you already have a pendant motor then it will do everything withbrute power at any speed. A good micromotor will do 90% of the workwith more finesse than a pendant motor, and 90% of the time thefinesse is more important too!
The foredom k1070 is the control box with the micro motor, the k1090 is the control box with the micro motor hand piece and the newhammer hand piece. You can use either one. keep an eye out for thenew micro grinder that was just developed for this unit.
I demonstrate these products at some of the larger trade shows andtest them out all the time. I do find them to give me much morefreedom of movement. They do seem to have less torque than a flexshaft so if i am running at a low speed I tend to pulsate thepressue on the bit when drilling through metal. if you are at ahigher speed there is no need for this at all. My issue with runningat the high speeds is that I risk the chance of burning up my bur.my friend was purchasing one of these from me and asked me toperform a test for him. I put a 2mm round bur in the micro motor,turned the speed control to half way and drilled through a 2mm pieceof half hard copper, it went through it like butter. keep in mindthe foredom goes 38000 rpms so me setting it at half speed on thecontrol unit was to save my bur. I have looked at some other unitsand noticed that the speed control on the control box does notalways over ride the foot pedal. the foredom does over ride the footcontrol, so if you set it on 25% speed and floor the foot controlyou will only 25% of its maximum speed. That is worth its weight ingold for me. I would like to know if any other micro motor unit doesthis.
The Foredom Micro-Motor is the epitome of a light-weighted operatingsystem. There is no longer that the chuck being tethered to thedarned heavy cable then being attached to the motor on a pole.
The air-cooling fan and rotor are now totally encased in thehandpiece. All there is now is a very light weight coiled electricalcable weighing grams instead of many ounces of rubber cable. You canalmost leave the motor on all day and not have the handpiece heat up.
BUT here is the best part, you can now easily hold your hand at anyangle that is required for diamond or stone setting. Your hands arefree to move in any angle you need. The running motor is extremelyquiet.
Gerry really hit the nail on the head when he mentioned the freedomof movement with the micro motor over the flex shaft. it really is adifferent animal as far as weight and mobility and again, I lovemine. the one limitation is the torque and the fact that it is aquick release usually set up for a 3/32 size bur. someone earliermentionsed the following:
Foredom has just released its new k1020 micro grinder kit samecontrol box as the k1070 but now there is a micro motor hand piecethat is alot like the Number 30, meaning it is a geared 3 jaw chuckthat goes up to 5/32" or 4mm diameter shank size. it works with astandard chuck key.
When I first began to take classes with Jay Whaley, he lent me asmall hand held tool. I was so fascinated with it, and so enjoyed thenon-tethered to a heavy overhanging motor, I immediately bought onefrom him. I know he still has some in stock. Cost about $70.00. Ithas a transformer that plugs into the wall and a slim light weightwire that plugs into the back end of the hand piece. Has a Jacobschuck so rotate, slip out the burr in use and slip in a drill, (yes Ido drill holes with mine) or any other you may want to use, sanding,polishing, grinding, etc.
Hello Makena, I am reading your thread regarding the Badeco MX1 Strong micromotor and I am wondering if there is some way that I can develop one of my Variable speed #9 Lowboy rheostats to work on this micromotor. We already have two models that we manufacture. (1) #9 Lowboy for standard 115 volt use and our #9XR Lowboy which was designed to be used on the Foredom TX, LX DC motors. Our prices are Very competitive on these two models. #9 Lowboy (standard) at $52.00 and model #9XR Lowboy at $62.00. Both of these models have many high reviews through out the Industry as the best rheostat that they have ever used. I will be in touch on my mission, and thank you for your time, Sincerely, Richard Lucas Lucadent@verizon.net or www.LucasDentalCompany.com
Maxium speed rotation is 35,000 rpm which is plenty for jewellery making applications and most deburring and polishing processes. The handpiece also offers excellent torque at 6.5Ncm and with the light weight 200 gram handpiece it will make grinding and polishing easy.
Powerful and smooth running grinding, milling and polishing motor with high technology. Brushless and vibration-free handpiece with high torque for professional use. The quick release handpiece is in spite of the extreme strong torque of 7,8 Ncm with optimal grip and is ideally suited for continuous daily use. Combination unit with two connections for brushless, as well as carbon brushes handpieces.
Essential tools for all jewellers, the hanging motors and micromotors consist of a motor with an extenstion on which you can attach a hand piece for burs, drill bits and other tools. Selfor + offers you TECHDENT products, a guarantee of quality in hand tools and micromotors. 041b061a72
