Why does the machine not move the correct distance?
Posted by Jim Dingus on 26 June 2015 02:16 PM
The most likely causes are:


  • The Steps Per Unit value for the axis is incorrect.
  • The motor for the axis is improperly tuned (acceleration and/or velocity are too high) which causes motor stalling and lost steps.
  • There is an electrical problem between the controller and the drive.
  • There is a mechanical issue such as backlash or slippage.
