First off: Forgive me if I say something incorrect since I just started getting into machining a few months ago.
I bought the machine posted in this link above and have two (hopefully) small problems that can be fixed.
1st: The soft axis limits seem to come into effect about 6 inches before the other limits are reached. I can't seem to find how to change these to where I get full travel.
2nd: The X axis and the Z axis when ran above 40% feed rate when letting off the jog they tend to vibrate kinda bad (constantly); kinda like something needs adjustment. Or something is trying to center itself and can't because of the inertia when it stops (if that makes any sense). The only way to stop this is to either hit the E-stop or to change direction and slow the feed rate under 40% then bring it to a hault.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
1. The soft axis limits should be found in the "Set Up" screen of your controller and can be set properly there. Best to use the dimensions listed in the manual
2. Sounds like your servo-drives need tuning and are oscillating to beat the band. Take a look and see what type and model of drive cards you have.
