American Rotary supplies phase converters for every facet of the woodworking industry! While a single phase converter can be used to operate a single piece of machinery, woodworkers often need to start and run multiple 3-phase machines (sometimes simultaneously), which also have varying load conditions. The balanced output of American Rotary phase converters allows for the safe operation of very small, lightly loaded 3-phase machinery on the same rotary 3-phase converter as larger, hard-starting equipment.

What about the Dust?

A common question when purchasing your first rotary phase converter for your wood shop is, will the saw dust be a problem for the Idler generator? The short answer to that question is no. This is because the Idler frame end caps have slots to help provide efficient cooling, but the internal motor windings are encapsulated with varnish and the bearings are double shielded so the typical amount of saw dust in your shop is not a problem. The slotted frame design along with using an internal fan provides the best cooling and quiet operation.

Kim Kohler, Owner / Watt's It Worth LLC

Just a note to say thanks. My ADX 5HP Rotary is up and running without a hitch. It is quite, fast and was easy to install. It makes my old Bridgeport and Hurco knee mills run perfectly. It was worth every penny I spent and I was sold all the necessary  parts I needed to make this install a home run.
