My problem is this. I need to spin a part the size of a can of corn in the range of 200rpm 1200rpm and start and stop as quick as possible. My goal is to reduce cycle time of current design. Is this best done using electric motor, hydraulic motor, air motor or what.
Thank in advance.

I know no way to start and stop quicker than with a hydraulic motor. No brake required, plenty of torque and near instant start and stop properties. Use a proportional valve and supply the voltage required to achieve the RPM you need. This can be done several ways. Your hydraulic supply house will help with motor / pump selection as well as a control voltage supply device to meet your requirements.

The worst suggestion of you lifetime may be the catalyst to the grandest idea of the century, never let suggestions go unsaid nor fail to listen to them.
