Epilog Laser X-Axis Motor Issue


The video above shows a faulty motor on the x-axis, which results if failed jobs and choppy / jerking movements of the carriage. The second part of the clip shows how it will engrave for a few seconds before shutting itself off (the lcd screen reads “X/Y Disabled). The issue we found was a problem with the motor for that axis. Make sure to check the tension of the belt before ordering a new motor as we have seen this happen before on other laser systems where the belts had too much slack which also can have that choppy movement and errors in engravings.
