The WorkBeeV1.0 was originally designed as a dual-drive system, making it a Screw Drive at smaller sizes and Belt Drive at larger sizes. Previously WorkBee sizes greater than 1000x1000mm were limited to belt drive because of un-acceptable whip exhibited by an ACME Screw at long lengths. However, we have changed the WorkBee Design and Assembly method in V2.0 to drastically reduce the whip in extra-large ACME Screws to an acceptable level for day to day operation.
This kit is designed to convert a V1.0 Belt Drive WorkBee to a V2.0 Screw Drive WorkBee Only. Do not buy this kit to extend an existing Screw Drive WorkBee of any version.
If you already have a belt drive WorkBee this conversion kit is for you. Using the parts from this kit, along with parts from dis-assembling the belt portion of the WorkBee, you will be able to fully convert your machine to a screw drive system on all axis.
