Linear Actuator End Mount
The V-Slot Modular Actuator End Mounts are stamped and folded aluminum end mounts. When used with 20mm series V-Slot extrusions they can be used to create a belt driven linear actuator by mounting both a Nema 17 stepper motor and the Smooth Idler Pulley to each end.
You can create V-Slot actuators at varying lengths using any of the four available sizes of 20mm series V-Slot, but the mount works best when paired with 20mm x 40mm extrusions. (See the example pictures) The mounting holes on the End Mounts are 20mm apart allowing for easy connection and they can be used with the double tee nuts to simplify installation.
One of the great features of these end mounts is the ability to mount to the ends as well as the bottom. This modular concept allows for the creation of many different machine designs. See example pictures to understand how these end mounts can be coupled with the Mini V Gantry Set.
This mount works great with the custom OpenBuilds NEMA 17 stepper motors (sold separately). If you need a Nema 17 sized motor with different specifications for your application we recommend checking out the selection of Nema 17 motors at StepperOnline.com (affiliate link) we have used their motors in several of our personal builds and have been very satisfied with the results.
So if you need a belt driven linear actuator that can be made to custom lengths and with connection flexibility for a modular style build, then these end mounts are perfect for your project.
