In addition to providing high-performance hybrid stepper linear motors, MOONS' provides high-quality leadscrews and nuts, opening up new avenues for equipment designers who need high performance and superior durability. The MOONS' actuators generate more force than similar actuators due to their special stator geometry and optimized magnet materials.
Our proven permanent magnet linear actuators are ideal for simple designs with lower performance requirements.
There are four types of linear stepper motors: external drive linear stepper motors (including lead screw and ball screw), straight shaft linear stepper motors, push rod linear stepper motors, and permanent magnet linear stepper motors.

Permanent Magnet Linear Stepper Motors

MOONS' offers two types of PM linear stepper motors: Permanent Magnet (PM) Stepper Motor Non-Captive and Captive, with push/pull force ratings of 24N(86.3oz) to 50N(179.9oz).

What is the positioning accuracy and repeatability of a linear stepper motor?

Positioning accuracy:error on the estimated position of a receiver related to the true position.
Ball Screw Positioning Accuracy:±0.052mm/300mm
Lead Screw Positioning Accuracy:±0.21mm/300mm
Repeatability:the closeness of the agreement between the results of successive measurements of the same measure, when carried out under the same conditions of measurement.
Ball Screw Repeatability:±0.01mm
Lead Screw with Standard Nut Repeatability:±0.05mm
Lead Screw with Anti-BacklashBlack Nut Repeatability:±0.02mm

What is the maximum speed of a linear stepper motor?

As the speed of a linear stepping motor increases, the torque will decrease, so when selecting a linear stepping motor, you need to refer to the speed-thrust table for selection. (see example following)

How to calculate the linear travel / step of a linear stepper motor?

travel/step refers to the displacement of the slider in the axial direction every time the motor rotates by a step angle.
Travel/Step=Leads/( 360°/Step Angle )
Lead is the linear travel the nut makes per one screw revolution
Pitch is the distance between screw grooves and is commonly used with inch sized products and specified as threads per inch. The pitch and lead are equal with single start screws. For multiple start screws the lead is the pitch multiplied by the number of starts.

How to solve the noise problem of linear stepping motor?

Check if the stepper motor is running in the low speed resonance area. When the stepper motor runs within 200pps, it is prone to low frequency resonance, and it is necessary to avoid this working range as much as possible.
When the thrust is greater than the load, the drive current can be reduced to reduce noise
Use MOONS' recommended grease to greatly reduce noise and increase nut life
For stepper-servo motors, check if the PID parameters are reasonable
If you are using a MOONS' driver, you can enable anti-resonance, torque ripple smoothing, microstep emulation, etc. to reduce noise
