This lead screw and anti-backlash nut block sets have been designed specifically for the CNC hobbyist in mind, to provide a low cost solution for providing linear motion when coupled with a stepper motor. This particular item comprises of a 240 mm stainless steel lead screw with a matching anti-backlash delrin nut. The diameter is 6 mm with a standard M6 1 mm pitch.
This pitch is ideal for small hobby CNC machines, where large speeds are not required, as the fine pitch provides good precision whilst requiring minimal force from a stepper motor, and thus is suitable for direct drive with small stepper motors. Due to the high resolution (0.005 mm per full step on a standard 1.8 degree motor) vibration is negligible and a simple drive can be used without micro-stepping, thus further reducing cost.
The lead screw is supplied polished and fitted with our anti-backlash delrin nut and has a standard 1 mm pitch. There is no machining on the ends but 6 mm bore bearings can easily be fitted to either end with standard 6 mm nuts.
The anti-backlash delrin nut is manufactured from grade A delrin (Acetal homoplymer B) supplied from a reputable European manufacturer. This material is extremely hard wearing, and normally does not require lubrication. A pre-set screw adjustment removes any backlash, and due to its mechanical properties there is minimum friction and wear.
The form of the nut is as a rectangular block with 2 mounting holes, and as such can be directly attached to the moving base, without need for brackets or additional items.
