Moons' makes great steppers. I've switched most of my steppers to moons' since they're very well built, quieter, accurate, and have less vibration than most. On most desktop printers, you won't find anything but nema 17's, which can do the job fine. Ultimaker also uses Moons'.

it depends on so many things
- what type of printer
- what type of axis
- what driver
- what voltage
- what speed ...

you can find out something on this calculator for e.g. ... the max speed you can expect from a motor based on it's parameters and what voltage your driver uses: https://www.reprapfirmware.org/ (click on emf calculator)

much more calculation and explanation here: https://www.orientalmotor.com/technolog ... tions.html
