Noise of timing belts

Recommended Posts

We have two UM2 of around two years old.

One of the two is quiet and the other is making a creaking / squeeking noise. It seems to be coming from the timing belts.

It does not have an effect on the print but the noise is irritating.

Does anyone have an idea how to solve this / what the problem is.

I'm getting a creaking noise which seems to only occur as the head is moving along the Y axis in one direction (from the back of the machine to the front).

Seems to be coming from the rear left side of the machine, which prompted me to replace the small flanged bearing which didn't solve the problem.

My thoughts are now maybe the Y stepper motor but unsure if they make noise like that.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
