steps Calculator

1. ## steps Calculator

Hello ppl of the Zone.

I found this
I'm not sure if it's already been posted, but here it is anyway.

2. Cool!

3. I am trying to calculate my steps per centimeter or millimeter.
Because my lead screw is 19mm per turn, and translating it to TPI (turns per inch?) is like 1.33684210526315789473684210526316 .

Is there any know calc like that but for millimetrics?
I am trying to get as much exactness as possible, might do it by hand after all.

4. what is a good number to have for "steps per inch"?

5. what is the formula for calculating this you could set it up in exel or something

6. Konstantin,

If you have 19mm/revolution and use microstepping (10x), you will have 19/2000 mm/step. This amounts to .0095 mm/step, or .000374 inches per step. This seems like a reasonable distance per step. Depending upon your application's need for speed, a stepping rate of 25 KHz will result in a speed of 561 IPM; good for plasma use.

Regards,
Jack C.

7. When I see 19 as a metric value, I get an itchy feeling. 16 or 20 is more used. And yes (25.4 / 4) * 3 = 19.05. So it looks more logical that Konstantins pitch = 3/4 inch.
