The iplasma 5.0 table was designed around parts sold by openbuilds.com
CBEAM linear rail allows for linear motion, high rigidity, and light weight
(18) v-guide wheels allow for the
X,Y,Z, and Z axis float on the
iplasma 5.0 table. The unique
design of the aluminum extrusion
allows for multiple channels for
the v-guide wheels to ride. This
allows each extrusion to be used
3 separate times over the life of
the machine as the rails wears.
Static timing belt and pulley
drive allows for a very
smooth linear motion, even
at high speeds. 1000 ipm is
no problem for this machine
since there are no meshing
gears that add vibration at
high speeds.
(500 ipm recommended to
increase life of components)
The GT3 endless timing belt
is mounted static on the
machine.
"The teeth on this
belt are more like a rack
system. The belt is thicker
than standard MXL or GT2
(2mm) and is great for use
with Nema 23 Motors where
deep tooth engagement is a
necessity!"

8mm diameter
fast travel
screw and
nut. The z axis
moves 8mm
per turn of the
screw. This
allows for
150ipm or
faster Z axis
moves.
