Looking to replace my stepperline (23HS45-4204S) nema 23s with clearpath servos. I have a standard mill with 1605 ball screws and a cutting area of 810mm x 810mm. Would appreciate recommendations from the forum.

It s a fairly heavy duty setup. See photo below

Hi @kencnc411

Is there a reason you want to replace them with servo's?

If you are loosing steps and are trying to fix it by buying servo's then it may not be the best option. I don't want to put you off the idea of servo's so if you want servo's please ignore me.

Could I suggest the video below about stepper motors and how to drive them. You may find you have a driver issue.

The motors you have are 1/3rd more powerful than mine and your machine smaller and much lighter so the motors you have should be able to run the machine beyond it's limits if driven properly.

Cheers

Peter
