With stepper driver we can start ramp with 1000 step/sec , ( 1msec/step) as you can rotate 90 degreed in 100msec at half-step , full current, bipolar driving, 24volts power supply and chopper method. You must pay attention to elastic return when press chuck onto object because if can't detect force on object it's easy go overall max motor torque.
I'm thinking of getting some stepper motors for a project so I'm interested in this.I don't understand @icio's reply.@Yaro, can you explain why you need to know the acceleration? Are you concerned about how quickly the motor will get up to speed without losing count of the steps?...R
Might I suggest you have a read of this article.
But you said you were interested in the question so presumably you are also interested in the potential problems of accelerating masses
How I can measure motor acceleration? I have this specifics:
