The Nova Galaxi DVR 1644 Lathe is among a select few pioneering smart lathes on the market, featuring an incredibly smooth-running direct-drive motor controlled by a sophisticated microcomputer with keypad and digital readout. The computer features DVR (Digital Variable Reluctance) technology, which automatically adjusts and maintains the speed and power of the lathe based on resistance. It also provides various functions that assist you with your turning. It can measure the weight of your workpiece and adjust the performance accordingly, sense faults in your setup and advise, and instantly shut down power if it senses chisel dig-ins or spindle lockout. That, coupled with the fact that the Galaxi's motor has no belts or pulleys, results in an incredibly smooth, quiet turning experience. The computer also optimizes efficiency so that the motor only draws as much power as is needed, saving up to 80% in energy and emissions over conventional motors. With its high torque motor, cast iron construction, exceptional structural strength and smart design, the NOVA Galaxi Lathe has the power and capacity to handle the most demanding turning operations with ease.
