Low RPM high Torque Motor with enough power to rotate 30 pounds?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, I'm working on an engineering project and I need to get a 30pound base to rotate at speeds between 6 rotations per hour and possibly 1 rotation per hour.

Does anyone know where to get such a motor, or if it is even possible?
Can anyone think of a better more efficient way of doing this task?
Thanks!

30 lbs? That's all?
1-6 rph? That's VERY slow.
Not sure why there is any problem.

A "winch" motor comes to mind, as it can be very slow.
Cheap and widely available for less than $100.

for the winch motor, what kind of power source do I attach it to?

DC. Car battery.
In your case, the load is so low that a very small car battery would work just fine.

Edit: Of course, with such a low current load, a simple AC/DC converter rated to your specs will work as well, with the benifit of just plugging it into your AC wall outlet.
