Lead Screw and Nut
The lead screw and nut combination is a fundamental mechanical component used in various applications, including 3D printers. They work together to convert rotary motion into linear motion, enabling precise and controlled movement in machines and mechanisms.
The lead screw, often referred to as a threaded rod, is a cylindrical shaft with a helical thread running along its length. It is typically made of materials like stainless steel or brass, known for their strength and durability. The helical thread on the lead screw allows it to engage with the nut, creating a mechanical connection.
The lead screw and nut combination, along with additional components like linear guide rails, timing belts and pulleys, form an integral part of various mechanical systems, including 3D printers. Linear guide rails provide stability and guidance, ensuring smooth and precise linear motion of the lead screw and nut assembly.
