Belt running into stepper wiring

Recommended Posts

On my newest machine, i am seeing that my belt is wearing away at the stepper wire, i have attached an image.
I am worried that this will make a serious issue in the future and if anyone has help or a solution to this.
I purchased this machine ust 4 weeks ago.
Thank you in advance

You could put a piece of clear tape over the wire to hold it into the groove that's cut out for it. That should do the trick; this way your Y-stop doesn't become damaged. 

 

You could also try some sort of sticky tack or glue dots inside the groove to pull it up and in, but I think a piece of clear tape across the hole that's cut out should do the trick.

      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
