Lead Screw Kit
Lead screws convert a turning motion into a linear motion, in other words take the rotational motion of a motor and convert it to a push or pull motion along the axis of the lead screw. The Matrix Lead Screws are perfect for creating a lifting mechanism to lift an arm or platform, a linear actuator, an XY table and many other structures where linear movement is required.
The Matrix Lead Screw Kit has two lead screws, one 128mm, and one 256mm in length with matching rails, two Lead Screw Nuts and axle joiners, everything needed to build a linear motion structure. The Matrix Lead Screw is manufactured from high quality stainless steel for added strength and has a square thread for maximum efficiency, and is pitched so for each rotation of the lead screw, the Lead Screw Nut will travel 4mm, or half the distance between two holes in the Matrix building system. This makes it easy to calculate the exact position of the Lead Screw Nut and linear mechanism.
