Screw momentum

  1. Oct 20, 2011 #1
    Hi i would like to ask you if you know how to calculate screw momentum for horizontal movement system. We are building some xy movement systems and we are using two rails withs screws. Something like this


    This system should carry maximum weight of 1 kg and we are looking for some DC motors which could operate this screws. Now we want to calculate the maximum momentum to decide which motor is the best solutions. Sorry for my english, i attached picture, maybe it will be more understandable.
