Differences Between Pivot, Rotary And Magnetic Clipper And Trimmer Motors

Differences Between Pivot, Rotary And Magnetic Clipper And Trimmer Motors

When you’re choosing your next clipper or trimmer, you consider which features you need and decide what you’re willing to spend for those features.

But what about the motor? How do you decide the type of motor you should purchase?

What’s the difference between pivot, rotary and magnetic motors? Here’s an explanation that should give you additional insight into clipper and trimmer quality the next time you are in the market for a new one.

“When we design a clipper or trimmer, Andis specifies the motor that will do the best job for each one,” notes Fred Koeller, Vice President of Marketing at Andis.

“We always take into account the type of cutting that the styling tool is designed for. Ideally, though, each barber and stylist understands the capabilities of the various types of motors, too.”

Pivot Motors—High Power, Lower Blade Speed: Thick, Heavy or Wet Hair

Pivot motor clippers and trimmers have high cutting power with a lower blade speed. Pivot motors are especially suitable for thick, heavy or wet hair. Andis pivot motors offer four times the power of comparable magnetic motors.

Rotary Motors—Equal Power and Blade Speed: Wide Variety of Cuts

Rotary motor clippers and trimmers offer an even amount of power and blade speed. With this combination, rotary motors are extremely versatile and work well for a wide variety of hair cutting methods. Andis rotary motors offer superior torque power and cutting performance in a lightweight size.

Magnetic Motors—Reliable Power and High Blade Speed: High Volume Cutting

Magnetic motors provide incredibly high speeds—as much as 7200 complete blade strokes per minute. This type of motor produces a smoother haircut. Precision built to run quietly and cool, they are perfect for high volume hair cutting. These maintenance free motors require no internal oiling and last for years with fewer moving parts to wear out.

Daily Hair Tip
After you have removed hot rollers from you hair let the curls set for a minute. Use fingers or pick to carefully arrange curls so they don't droop.
