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.

    • "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.
