I recently gutted my Chinese 100W CO2 laser and rebuilt it in a more suitable housing to make it easier to get to everything. The construction is done and I’m into the calibration phase. It’s a belt-drive system like most.
I have the speed and acceleration settings pretty close to where I want them, but I’ve been testing with the continuous jog button on the controller (Ruida RDC6445). It moves perfectly with this, but when I set the manual movement to a specific distance and press the jog button it does move, but NCREDIBLY slowly. So slowly I have to watch the pulley on the motor very closely to see that it’s even turning. It finishes the move but something is obviously wrong.
Is there a separate setting somewhere that I can’t find that dictates the speed that it moves in Manual jog versus Continuous jog?
