I am currently working on building my v3 extrusion machine,
We are having some troubles with our current motor, which is a 3kw, 200nm torque motor, with a max rpm of 500 at 50hz.
But it seems like the special extrusion screw needs a lot more torque to run. As currently, the motor comes to a halt as soon as we put the granulates in.
How much torque do you think is needed?
And what kind of connection (bearing, coupler) are you using for the connection to the motor? It would be great if you could provide some details of what exact parts you are using for your extruder.
