I have an Industrial CNC Router.
When I move the x axis move about 3 ft , left to right, and stops. I have checked the gears and have also replace a linear bearing thta i thought was bad. Their are no nicks or other things that appear to be causing this . It has been an on going problem. I have switched the x and y cables. The x axis still stops. This is not a smooth stop but more like something binding, the x motion has a jerky back and forth jerky motion. To get the x axis to move again I have to push the gantry manually. If I manually push the gantry to the lest several inches it will work.
Can any one help me??? The CNC seems to be working fine until the x axis reaches this point of travel. I have reset both hard and soft limits. The problem does not go away. Below are the specs for my CNC.
Can any one help me ?????
