uStepper Linear Actuator
uStepper Linear Actuator kit gives you powerful linear actuation !
The kit includes:
- All mechanical parts for a 450 mm Linear Actuator
- 3D printed parts with 30% infill and 0.2mm layer in Black PLA
Optionally you can chose the complete kit adding a uStepper S DC-jack, compatible NEMA 17 motor, Power supply, USB cable and our Ego Shield to make it fully stand alone !

The uStepper Linear Actuator kit gives you a 450 mm actuator (extruded aluminium part length) with 400 mm of travel for the M8 and 480 mm of travel for the T8x8. It is tested to pull 12 Kg horizontally without any trouble (M8 version).
With the M8 lead screw version you get higher torque, lower speed and an actuator that is better at holding its load without power on the stepper motor. On the T8 lead screw version you get smoother operation and more speed while sacrificing a bit of torque and reducing the ability to hold loads without power on the stepper motor.
The T8 version has 8 mm of travel per revolution and the M8 1.25 mm
In the complete kit you will also get:

Speed comparison M8 vs T8x8
T8x8 moves 6.4 times further per revolution than the M8 and thus it is faster than the M8.
