Laser stops in the middle of a project
« on: September 28, 2017, 09:31:59 AM »
Laser randomly stops in the middle of a work. Hangs on a spot like it needs to restart. The problem is that it is not consistent problem. One time it works flawlessly next job on the same dxf file it hangs. I am making cordura patches so it is not a big loss of material but still it bothers me. Any idea how to remedy that? I am using the latest version of BenCut laser.

1. USB data transfer failures.
2. Host PC going to sleep mode.
3. Flaky power supply.
4. Incorrect current limits on motor drivers.
5. Bad cables between controller and drive motors.
6. Overheating.
7. Phase of moon relative to average size of earthworms in Peru.

check your wheels and rails for debri.

Mine would stop in the middle of a job, restart with 2 cm out if place. Turned out debri in the wheels and rails
