Pick and place smt?

whit Business growing i was need better machine
so i got a Mydata machine ( 8 feet long / 2000 lbs)
so the good new for you i that i sold all my 4 zevatech machine
that machine was easy to hack and i sold it whit my own version
of controller running on XP , some one also make a open source version
all machine come will full service manual and documetation
you will probably never got a working pick place for a lower cost
and that machine also pass normal door way and was only ~300lbs
trust me it less more trouble that pass a 2000lbs 8 feet long machine on a stairway
that video of machine take today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WicZKiOeGHI]Zevatech PM460 SN:453 Running Phoenix Software & Controller - YouTube
it Item number: 261013110972 on ebay
once sold will list the next one and so on ....
i read previous post about assembly cost
since i run myself a small assembly shop i may put my grain of salt ;-)
normally i charge ~150$ setup free , it take at least 3 hour to program machine
and load all feeder ... that fixed cost for small or big run
stencil was stencil shop price normally 200$ ...
ten i figure that machine run a 200$/ hour and it place ~3000 to 3600 part hour
that may seem high but a new commercial machine cost 100k and up
as example Mydata Qoute me 65K$ for a used re-manufactured machine
whit only 2 feeder box so 32 x 8mm reel ans for running we need much more
and you still need a good reflow and stencil printer and pcb wash station
the problem come from that it much more easy to make big batch
since one machine setup you only need to change empty reel and machine
will do money 24H/day 7/7
make small batch (<1000) require to stop and program ,setup etc etc
so shop increase price since it simply not what to make it
on my since i take profit of this job that other shop not want
i made my own software for program machine faster and make it painless
and i run on used machine that permit to lower my fie cost
but this require that i need to do all service by myself ...
i confirm that tom kflop board was well build i use it on my cnc
will surely used it for my zevatech if i have knot about before i start proejct
Does someone can tell me why I can not get high speed with NEVA 17 engine, the driver is standard with the L297 and 298 half-steps, as soon as we cross the 300 mm per minute starts to lose a step, I want you to make a small pick and place machine, but no speed of the drive belt over and I saw that people here have very high-speed travel of the machine.
You can typically get around 4 to 5 revolutions per second with a stepper with a basic driver. To get faster, you need two things. The first... high voltage to overcome the inductance of the stepper windings, which is limiting the rate at which the winding can saturate. But you then need to PWM that power to avoid going over the rated power and burning the stepper up. The second is mid-band resonance. It's a big topic, but it will limit you speed if not handled.
There is where paying the bucks for a gecko driver will help.
Do you have a scheme of such a basic driver to see things in ways that drive, if you send me a private post or to place a link to that address higher that's how it works.
My best speed is higher as in this video when you go slower, if you put a higher speed then we lose a step and if you set it to some 1200 mm / min engine can no longer even ones that run, the number of steps is 9.083 mm for a displacement.
If I understood well, the problem is that we stress long before reaching the maximum current value, but every engine should have a power supply with a constant current source, so that when the current reaches the maximum value that the power goes out.
I think the L298 and L297 are in constant current measurement itself but I do not know whether they work as PWM controllable.

Come on people did not guess that my bass no one can help with advice on how to speed up stepper motor, I guess someone still had such a problem, please help me, thanks
Typically the higher the speed you run a stepper, the lower the torque. If run too high, it will stall. You can use a bigger stepper, higher voltage with current limiting or buy a good stepper driver, like those Gecko produce. If you want to make one yourself, you need to do a lot of reading. It's a big topic, not something a simple post on a forum is going to cover.
Ok, you can tell whether you are using the driver for your machine, I see a very fast-moving head spade and place machine.
If GEKO can make the driver can and I just have to know that the problem troubles me, I so far I have not worked with the stepper so I do not know the problem, that you say to go with the higher voltage is not exactly a solution, because the engine will overheat in the long run, who stepper you use to run the head for pick and place.
The new style current mode stepper drivers are effectively switch-mode driven and quite sophisticated.
The motors will not overheat.
The current is not exceeded.
When you apply voltage to an inductive device, the stepper winding, initially the current is zero and rises over time until the inductive effect is no longer significant.
At that point the winding resistance and supply voltage control the current.
These drivers run in constant current mode, so the current is not exceeded and the winding voltages drops back to a low enough voltage to satisfy the current programmed.
The high voltage is required so that the current rises to the programmed level in a shorter period of time, and this allows the motor to run faster.
As well as all this, the current mode is used to accurately control the ratio of the current between the windings and then you have microstepping.
And to top it off, the load reacting against the torque is like a spring, so that resonances can occur at certain speeds and loads.

Super X3. 3600rpm. Sheridan 6"x24" Lathe + more. Three ways to fix things: The right way, the other way, and maybe your way, which is possibly a faster wrong way.
Not possible that anyone on this forum do not know that Stepp driver who will be able to run the engine at least 15 revolutions per second, on the internet I saw a bunch of videos on which engines cnc forced to 2400 mm / min and the homemade so I guess someone could articles to be used by controllers.
