V-Slot Mini V Linear Actuator (Belt Driven)





This V-Slot Mini V Linear Actuator (Belt Driven) is a fast and easy solution to a V-Slot Gantry System.

This kit utilises standard v-slot parts to create a very simple but powerful belt-driven linear actuator. The belt-driven linear actuator takes advantage of the v groove and uses the precise and strong mini v wheels for smooth linear motion. The linear actuator can be used for a whole host of applications, from a simple camera slider to a modular 3D Printer design.

Because this kit uses all standard v-slot parts it can be easily combined with more of these actuators, other types, or a design of your own to quickly build a functional machine.

Tools required:

Pro Tip:

  • Don’t forget to slide the Gantry onto the V-Slot before you attach both Actuator Pulley Plates.
  • Don’t forget to attach the Timing Pulley to the Nema17 Motor shaft before attaching the Motor to the Plate.
  • Follow this process for correct tensioning the GT2 Belt:
    1. Tighten the screws on one Actuator Pulley Plate to secure the Plate in position.
    2. Feed the Belt over the Pulleys and through the hollow center of the V-Slot
    3. Tie or Clamp the GT2 Belt on both sides of the Gantry
    4. Pull the other Actuator Pulley Plate away to Tension the GT2 Belt, tighten the screws on the plate while it is under tension
