If you notice that the Retro C carriage is stalling or hunting around at the end of a movement here are the steps that to take to resolve this issue.

  • Step 1: Clean dust from the GearRack
  • Step 2: Confirm that the carriage is square and that both material feeds arms are square using the information from this article:
  • Step 3: Check the torque tamer.
    • The nut on the torque tamer needs to be tightened… To do this you need to loosen the two set screws and tighten the nut and then retighten the set screws.
  • Step 4: Check that the chain is tight. There should be very little play in the chain system.
  • Step 5: Check that encoder shaft is tight against the spur gear rack, also check that the encoder is tight in the shaft. (See Image below)
  • Step 6: Check that the air brake is not dragging when it’s moving.
