    Default Taig stepper motor problems

    Hello everyone, I been having problems with my Nema 23 steppers. They have lost their torque. All four at once. I have been working with tech support but they have not been able to figure out the problem. I am using Mach3 as the control. So far this is what I have done:I increased the velocityI increased the stepsI checked the voltage of the capacitors in the control box and double checked the fusesI checked the CPU usage I bought a new/used computer with windows xp 32 bitOne interesting point, the new/used computer ran with less torque and less power. If you can help please do!thank You

    Are you 100 percent positive you are using the xml files that worked correctly with the old computer?

    What happens when you reattach the old computer, does the stepper performance return to normal?

    I am using the controller produced by micro-proto. I have been on tech support with them but it's moving very slowly.

    Are you using backlash comp in Mach3, if so try disabling it.
