Question #: 961

Question: Would the 425 Oz motor to be strong enough to turn a 4ft 2005 Ballscrew attached to a Gantry that is about 20-30lb?

Current Solution

Yes, these 425 oz-in motors are very strong. 20-30 lbs is actually very light for these motors, especially when used with ballscrews as the friction coefficient is very low.

If you ask the customer service live a question like: "how much weight can my motor lift", you will find the formulas to determine the amount of weight the motors at a particular oz-in rating can move. Typical friction coefficients are included in those formulas.
