    Hello, first I thank those who took the time to open this topic to read, I appreciate even more who could help me with the doubts that are the following.
    I want to build a 4DOF more loss of traction the doubt and about the actuators I intend to use DC 24/12v motors and hall sensor, the doubt is how many NM do I need each actuator to have to lift the 4 together a load of 120kg?

    I did some basic math with this motor for example that has 0.3nm
    4800RPM
    160w power

    a spindle that has 30x reduction 4800/30=160Rpm
    30x0.3NM=9nm
    9nmx4=36nm ie the 4 actuators together would have 36nm theoretically these 36nm can lift how many kg on the platform?

    I don't know if these calculations are what I have to consider, if I'm wrong can someone show me the correct way?

    Doing some research here I found out how to convert motor RPM into mm/min linear motion.
    The formula.
    P= 4mm P=spindle pitch in mm/min
    V=4800 V=Engine speed in RPM
    Vf=?? Vf= Speed in mm/min

    Formula (Vf=P*V)
    (Vf=4*4800)
    =19,200 mm/min
    being so and just divide the result by 60 to know that we have
    320mm/s

    The question now is how to convert the motor torque to linear movement of the spindle?
