Thread: Z axis hesitating
i have a 3040 T machine. Had it for a few weeks now and slowly been learning my stuff
its running with mach3 and I have managed a few good results. However it has developed a fault where the z axis will lift and stall partially but mach 3 still shows it's going up
same problem going down sort of shunting as if it's getting stuck on the screw thread?
can anyone shed any light on how to fix
many thanks guys
Check wiring to Z axis first.
Ok thank you
i have looked at the connections they seem ok but not delved too deep
I will delve a bit further
it isn't biding when I turn the knob at the top of the motor it's notchy but just like the other motors
any other ideas I may try
If you can swap connections around, try changing with another axis to see if the problem is transferred. If it is , it's electrical. If not it is mechanical.
If Mach is showing it as moving but it's not is the Z axis coupling slipping?Neil...
I will try swapping the connections around and see what happens
also will look to see if the z axis coupling slipping (not sure where to look for this tho?)
thank you all for the positive replies
I have heard the wiring to there are a little suspect
would I be able to purchase better wiring from say Maplin (what size gauge etc)
or is it a more specialized shop
will I find allen type head bolt in the holes that may need tightening
