Crackling sound from stepper motor

Recommended Posts

Hello, so i got this printer for work. I noticed that my printer does alot of sound compared to ohter UM2-s

Anyway i think it hasnt got any maintence for a while. I changed the nozzle setup, so that is fine. But about the noise. I figured it comes from the right back motor. I loosend the belt and the sound dissapeard when i moved it by hand(the motor was moving). From that i thought when the motor gets a bit of preassure it starts crackling. Should i buy new sets of belts and replace the motor? And if so can somebody link me some good motor.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
