Hi Folks,

 

Yesterday I come across a small stepper motor, that might be used on the extruder itself, or for some other use..

The weight is 50 gram and length 30 mm with 4 mm shaft.

Not the smallest, but cost only 4 USD (500 Yen) so I bought 3 ea.

Here is a picture:

The "big" connector we are using on UM2 is shown beside the micro connector this mini stepper use.

Specs is found here: https://wakamatsu.co.jp/biz/products/detail.php?product_id=62020023

 

This stepper is made here in Japan.

 

Thanks

 

Torgeir.

Where did you source this from?  Ive seen these before, but for a lot more than 4 usd.  I was thinking they would be good for a diy laser engraver gantry (or something?)

Hi Jakeddesign,

 

Just search amazon with this P/N and you find them for about 350 Yen..

I'd just saw them when I was looking for another suitcase. 

(After 3 mounts here, you collect a few things..)

 

But I've still a week before returning home,. so..

 

Anyway, I found this at Akhihabara, the "electronic town" inside Tokyo..

 

Thanks

 

Regards

 

Torgeir.

They resemble steppers from old floppy drives? They had one to move the heads.

 

For a direct drive of the filament, it would need a huge reduction gear to get enough torque, I think. But I like the idea.
