    Default Advice on closed loop stepper unit please

    Looking at purchasing this 1 axis closed loop driver/motor set for Z on my mill and would like your opinions please good &/or bad.
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Closed-Lo...0AAOSw3GBcxWAh

    I have a 60VDC power supply to run it from.


    The bog standard stepper set I have at the moment has too much torque (12nm) by the sounds of it.
    Resonance issues make it practically unusable. 8mh inductance figure isn't helping either I reckon.


    Thanks in advance.

    You are running a stepper and your belief is it has too much torque? Is it missing steps? Have you tried different microstepping values?

    A lazy man does it twice.

    Tried it. I've gone from 1000/rev up to 10,000/rev with no change.
    It's not missing steps as such, t's the resonance from it making it stall. Can only get to 1200mm/min.
    If I swap it for a 1090 oz/in the noise is almost gone and I can double the rapid speed.

    The stepper you've got doesn't have too much torque, it has too much inductance. With 8mH, it wants about 90vdc supplied to run optimally. While high-torque motors tend to have more inductance, there isn't a fixed ratio between the two factors. Motors can be designed to maximize torque and minimize inductance, but doing that seems to make them cost more. That other motor you pointed at with inductance of 3 mH would be a much better candidate, but you'll need special software to take advantage of the closed-loop feature.
