Question #: 6793

Question: Hey. I have noticed that you guys use roller chain to move x,y axis and a lead screw to move the z axis, can you please explain the motivation in short? Thank you.

Current Solution

Dealing with running our CNC machines with roller chain on the X/Y-axes and lead screw on the Z-axis, we chose this method due to functionality and cost effectiveness. We wanted to make the lowest cost CNC machine available for our customers without taking to much functionality and precision away from the machine. We wanted the accuracy and cost effectiveness to be surprisingly high, with our machines getting thousandths of an inch will be no issue, and having it at a decent price!
