Big! Like can of Pepsi! Triple stack no less, and the fun thing is when you hit it with a full 80 volts (in to the drive of course) it’s just about as quick as a bunny, and makes really fun robotic bunny noises. At the end of the day, it’s going to get us well over 1000 inch per minute rapids. That’s pretty speedy.

In line with yesterday’s post, here is the beast of a motor that will drive the X-axis of the new CNC router. This is a NEMA 34 frame stepper motor with 1288 ounce-inches of holding torque. To give you a better idea of what that means, if you attached a foot long bar to the motor’s shaft, it could hold a 6.7lb weight in place on it. That may not sound like much, but torque is a weird unit to get a grasp of, and it is also going through a gear reduction on the machine, so in the end it is quite a lot of force!
