Introducing Lead Screws! Lead screws can add linear movement to your robot. The lead screws and axles have a 4mm diameter and are made from stainless steel. Gus Jansson created an XY table to show one use of the lead screw. Other uses include lifting an arm, elevating a platform, raising a scissor lift, and more. The lead screw has a 4mm pitch. In other words, the lead screw nut will move 4mm for every rotation of the lead screw. Lead screws are fast and precise.
