Stepper Motor in 3D Printers
Stepper motors are an important part of 3D printers. They are used in a variety of applications depending on the type of printer. For example, stepper motors are used to move the extruder or the build platform alone the x, y, and z axis. The extruder assembly also has a stepper motor used to pull the filament into the extruder.
Stepper motors are unique in that they can move to a known interval and then hold that position. Because they are a good motor to move an object to a repeatable position, they are often used in robotics and in printers.
Stepper motors come in a variety of sizes. The most popular sizes used in 3D printers are the NEMA 14, NEMA 17, NEMA 23, and NEMA 24. NEMA is a measurement standardized by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and refers to the frame size of the motor. Just because a motor has a larger frame doesn't mean it has more torque.

Low vibration,Low heating, No loss of step
Fast Response,Better Acceleration Performance
Thanks to a robust design they can be selected for the harshest environments. Precise, open-loop, speed and position control can be achieved with the application of full step, half step, or microstepping electronics.
Stepping angle is adjustable( rang in 18°±5%）， 0.9 °stepper motor's stepping angle is smaller, fineness is higher and positioning is more accurate.Avoiding vibration,runs more smoothly and gets lower noise.
