3D Printer Torsion Locking Spring For Reprap GT2 6mm Timing Belt [8mm x 5mm] package contains of special spring that are used in linear movement belt mechanism of the 3D printer. Most of the 3D printer needs a linear motion, but motors offer rotational motion, so a mechanism is needed to convert the rotational motion to the linear motion. Most 3D printers use a mechanism consist of leadscrews and timing belts. In the printing process, the leadscrew moves the hot end to upward or haet bed to downward to create a linear movement along Z-axis. Belts translate the rotational motion of the motor to linear motion in X and Y-axis. A belt mechanism consists of a coach fixed to the belt, a toothed pulley or gear (sprocket) connected to the step motor, and a timing belt with teeth. The belt teeth fit into the notches of the gear, preventing it from slipping, and allowing it rotates with the motor, so keeping the belt taut is a very important factor in timing. Thus the belt taut should be adjusted in a connector, or attached to a tensioner.
This strong spring is made of stainless steel material and acts as a tensioner for tautening the timing belt to make a uniform and constant belt tension. This spring is specialized for the Reprap GT2 6mm timing belt of the 3D printers.
