I want to move a 7 kg object linearly, using a stepper motor. How can I determine the torque required by a stepper motor depending on the load?

  • Is the motion pure horizontal? or you want to lift the weight up to a certain height then translate it horizontally? – Sam Farjamirad Oct 10 at 17:11
  • yes, the motion is pure horizontal.. – Fatimah Oct 10 at 18:09

    What about top speed? Friction to overcome? What about acceleration? You need to include much more information regarding your use case, and preferably also a diagram. Then you’re much more likely to get a good answer! – Jonathan R Swift Oct 10 at 22:03
