New Spindle Motors, Arbor Motors, Custom Motors
High performance, best in quality & service
Typically, these are used in the woodworking, plastics, and metal working industries. They can, however, be used in various applications across several industries.
High performance, best in quality, service, made in Italy – stocked, modified to need, and supported from Rockford, Illinois by our expert technical staff.
We offer several different types of motors (spindle motors, router motors, saw motors, custom arbor shaft motors), made in Italy (we have been selling these best in quality motors since 2003 and will not consider offering any other motor) but serviced, stocked, supported, and modified at our facility in Rockford, Illinois, for various applications. Ekstrom also repairs all make / model spindles, routers, motors, and aggregate millling heads. Typically, these are used in the woodworking, plastics, and metal working industries. They can, however, be used in various applications across several industries. This includes Fimec motors. Contact us at email@example.com for a fast quote.

Fimec saw motors, manufacturing only high performance saw motors in Italy with the best components since 1956, offer a high horsepower in a compact size, making it the ideal motor for saw arbor applications . The housing is an extruded light alloy flat housing and the rotor is a pressure aluminum die cast cage design. Motors are balanced with a half key installed on the shaft extension. The stator is wound with Class H copper conductor insulation. Standard bearings are single row deep grooved, shielded for protection, and greased for life. (Exceptions include the SAWM-C54 and special arbor motors with duplex angular contact bearings in the front end). See below for approximate dimensions and model numbers. **Stock shaft diameters in the United States are typically 1.00 Inch for all motors other than H48, SAWM-C54, which are 5/8″.. Special shafts, with different lengths or larger diameters, HSK63C and for some models, are available in 3-5 weeks from Italy, and 1-3 weeks from Rockford, IL (for the H71c2Se, H80Sb2Se, and H90S2Se). HSK63F, ISO, CAT, and BT spindle nose models are available in our SpindleMax Automatic Tool Change Line.

Motors are available in 3 phase (SE) and 1 phase (0.9 and 1.04HP) design. Single phase motors are equipped with a run capacitor permanently turned on and connected to the auxiliary winding for starting. Saw motors are typically supplied with a left or right hand threaded shaft, nut and flanges. Other options are available upon request. Many of our motors use a custom extended solid shaft for use as shaper, moulder, or tenoner motor for tool locking with a hydrotool or locking nut. Lead-times of 1-5 weeks can be accomplished for motors with shaft modifications. Depending on the motor, the terminal box can be positioned near the exit shaft (standard on right side), near the fan cover, or on the top of the motor. It can also be rotated in steps of 90° in order to provide cable entry from different directions. Motors manufactured with a pneumatic brake (available in the H80 and H100 frame) are equipped, at the rear shield, with a pneumatically operated annular piston working against a spring-loaded friction disk. The benefits of this design include varying brake torque by air pressure adjustment, a constant brake force, long life with no electric brake windings, and a higher braking power than dc electric brakes. An electric valve is required to control air supply to the brake. Brakes not meant for high cycling and not covered under warranty. Motors manufactured with a dc electric security brake (available in all frames) are well suited for cutting safety stops. The brake can be wired separately of directly from the motor terminal box connected to a high quality rectifier. Brakes not meant for high cycling and are not covered under warranty. **Data above may not be applicable to all motors. Contact us for details on your specific need.
