Z Axis is there a need for Ball Screw

Recommended Posts

Posted · Z Axis is there a need for Ball Screw

Attended the show in Birmingham TCT show where Ultimaker attended allot of interesting machines there and Dual Extruders, working. One machine cought my eye which used Ball Screws for the Z axis would this be a benefit for the UM2 I always thought it would have saved on cleaning the threads and greasing.

For sure a ball screw makes the maintenance life easier.

I had a ball screw on my UMO. In the meantime I replaced it with a HBK as my UM2 (ok, I have to admit: with an Olsson Block) prints even better with the standard screw.
