Guide, Ball Screw and Servo Motor Sizing
Today, we are going to learn basic knowledge of how to choose products for horizontal linear axis. Imagine that, this calculation can be Y axis of cnc router or X axis of big 3D printer.
I’m using Yaskawa SigmaJunmaSize+ and THK Life Calculator applications.
Suppose we have a 2000 kg load for the axis that will work horizontally. Let’s consider it as 4 linear guides-2 rails, and the ball screw as the drive element.
The values we want to achieve in the sample application are as shown below.
Max speed: 250mm/sec
Stroke : 2000mm
