8mm Metric Acme Lead Screw
This precision trapezoidal (metric) lead screw's pitch and diameter are a perfect combination of high torque and speed. This screw fits the bill for most machine designs and has became a standard on OpenBuilds. Equipped with a large diameter that helps eliminate whipping and a high pitch which provides a quick 8mm translation for every single revolution on the screw. It's a great power transmission choice for your build!
Use with the OpenBuilds Nut Plate, Nut Block, or Anti-Backlash Nut Block along with 8mm couplers, lock collars, bearings, and shims.
