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.

If you are building your own 3D printer, https://www.cloudraymotor.com has a purchasing guide to help you determine which stepper motors will work the best for the 3D printer you are building.

Cloudray Stepper Motor Series has set the standard for quality, reliability, and durability in stepping motors. The precision of our Torque Power motors is matched only by the dependability of their performance. All Torque Power motors are bi-directional and totally enclosed with permanently lubricated ball bearings for long-lasting, smooth operation.

 

Cloudray stepper motor series are widely used in medical instruments, robotics, 3D printers, extruders, laser cutters, engraving machine, textile equipment, packaging machinery, CNC machines, etc. 

 

1.8A Nema 17 Motor with 3D Printer/CNC
High Torque, High Precision and Long life is Cloudray's core advantages
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.
