So I am venturing into upgrading all the motors on the my xxl with hdz to a motor with 1.8 A draw and 340 ozin holding torque( 2.4 Nm for the rest of the world)
Can anyone help me with the hdz ball screw shaft diameter where the flex coupling attaches to? I need to replace the coupling due to a larger motor input shaft but I cant pull the machine apart for a couple days and would like to get parts ordered. I do not have the current generation of the the hdz but the previous generation that I ordered this summer
before anyone says that I dont need to upgrade the z motor, I don’t care I’m going to try it to see if I can increase the speed/ I like to tinker.
This started as me running into issues with the x and y axis having different forces applied to the bit and making life difficult to figure out how hard I could push. The stepper motors slipping has always been the weakest link with my current setup. I also was having juddery x axis movement and decided to upgrade the x axis with these motors to see what difference it made.
with the stock motors I could push with two fingers and make the x axis slip. With this motor I can nearly put my bod weight into it without slippage. I know very scientific, But is what Ive got for now. It was impressive enough that since I ordered a 5 pack of pullies and I cant just have 4 of them sitting in m spare parts organizer that I Ordered 4 additional motors (I like having a spare for unproven parts).
So I now have the motors, I have the pulleys, The bolt pattern and wire colors are the same, Connectors should be here tomorrow so all that is left is the flex coupling for the hdz which admittedly I didn’t think about until tonight.
