I am currently building a machine for a school project.I have a pivot point and wish to use a stepper motor to turn the base at an angle. The base is carrying a load of approximately 10kg.
I was wondering whether a stepper motors rated torque (10kgf-cm) is still maintained if you were to use a 1cm in diameter threaded rod that is 30 cm long.
I have viewed other questions on this topic, and I understand that increasing the radius results in decrease of kilograms able to be moved . But there is no explanation of the effects a rod has on torque.
TLRD: Does a threaded screw, 1cm in diameter and 30cm long vertically, cause a reduction in the stepper motors max torque --> 10kgf-cm.
