The OpenBuilds Solid V Xtreme V Wheel is part of the heavy duty Xtreme line of OpenBuilds parts, designed with strength in mind.
These Solid Xtreme V's are made from very hard polycarbonate (clear) material which, due to its strong nature, will resist compression and wear and in turn, lead to better overall precision and strength for your builds.
The Xtreme V Wheels are designed to be used as a heavy duty alternative to the Delrin V Wheels in applications such as CNC Routers/Mills where force and weight are introduced into the system. So, while the Delrin V Wheels work great for most light load applications, the OpenBuilds Solid V Xtreme Wheels can be used for builds where heavier loads are required and less compression in the delrin is desired.
The OpenBuilds Team have tested these wheels at 25 lbs. per wheel with no noticable deflection. Beta testing resulted in unofficial results of 55 lbs. per wheel!
Many of these wheels could be added to a gantry to allow an for even distribution of the load across them.
Each wheel is carefully milled for consistent high precision and tolerance.
