Threaded Rod is suitable components for 3D printing applications. In this application, the rod is basically used to create the Z-axis and is used as a printer drive mechanism. There are many arguments to suggest that the screw is better than the screw in 3D printing applications. Although both products have their own advantages and disadvantages, there are some reasons why the screw is usually the first choice for this particular application.
The satisfactory performance of threaded rods in linear motion applications is known. One reason behind this is that a certain degree of tension is applied to the rod during the printing operation. This ensures that the rod will not be compressed and bent during printing. Many manufacturers produce smooth rods with large diameters to ensure that there is adequate tension, tensile strength and low levels of compression.
Sometimes, due to the manufacturing process, the threaded rod can be naturally bent. However, this can be eliminated by producing a high-strength bar that can provide stability in the application. Another option is to use precision linear motion mechanics to support the rod. Therefore, you can adjust the lever to accommodate the printer's requirements.
In a 3D printer, turn the lever so that the printer mechanism moves and effectively scans the document in order to create a soft copy or hard copy. The threaded rods are manufactured at a certain pitch, which allows the rod to provide a high level of accuracy during the print / scan process.
