Limit Switches

A 3D printer limit switch is a component that helps to determine the physical limits of the printer's movement. It is typically used to detect the end of travel for an axis of the printer and can be used to trigger an action.

1. What is limit switch in 3d printer?

  • Mechanical limit switches are the most commonly used due to their simplicity and low cost. It's basically a push button that activates when you depress a metal spring arm. Pressing the switch opens or closes the circuit depending on how it is wired. When the carriage is placed on the linear rail, it hits the limit switch and the microcontroller detects the switch state change and stops the motor stepping.

2. What is the purpose of limit switches?

  • 3D Printer Limit switches control the electrical circuits that control the machine and its moving parts. These switches can be used as pilot devices in solenoid starter control circuits to start, stop, slow down, or accelerate the function of the 3D printer's electric stepper motor.

3. How do you control a limit switch?

  • A limit switch initiates actuation when a moving machine or a moving component of a machine contacts an actuator or operating lever that actuates the switch. Limit switches regulate the electrical circuits that control machines and their moving parts.

4.  Are limit switches repeatable?

  • The repeatability of installed limit switches is determined by the type of drive head used. The switches with the best repeatability are typically direct-acting pushbutton or plunger types with a repeatability of 0.003 inches or better.
