This precision trapezoidal (metric) lead screws pitch and diameter are a perfect combination of high torque and speed. This screw fits the bill for most machine designs and will quickly become a standard on OpenBuilds.
Equipped with a large diameter that helps eliminate whipping and a high pitch which provides a quick 8mm translation for every single revolution on the screw.
It's a great power transmission choice for your build!
- Tr8*8-2p (4 starts)
- Lead Screw Diameter ∅ 8 (mm)
- Pitch 2 (mm)
- Lead 8 (mm)
- Stainless Steel
An example steps settings for your control software would be 200 steps per millimeter if you are running the common 1.8 degree steppers and your stepper driver is set to 1/8 step mode.
To calulate different step scenarios for your control software have a look at these handy steps calculators
Common setup example
NOTE: With 4 starts the pitch will be 8. So 8 is what you would use for the pitch setting in the steps calculators..
Also be sure to ask on OpenBuilds if you have any questions.
