Stepper motors can be used for more than just a rotation.
When combined with lead screws, they provide a high accuracy linear positioning system that provides the benefits of a stepper (open loop control, long life, high torque density, etc.).
The lead screws available on stepper motors are all based on metric dimensions (M1.2 up to M3) and specifi cally designed to be assembled with PRECIstep® stepper motors. The technique used to produce the thread ensures a very high precision and consistency of quality. A large choice of standard lengths is available from stock and customization is possible on request.
Such a combination is ideal for any application such as requiring accurate linear movement or lens adjustment (zoom, focus), microscope stages or medical syringes.
