    Default Funky Machine noise

    I recently had an axis drive replaced and since then the machine has been making this god awful noise at specific locations on the X axis it also changes depending on the position of the Y axis. The housing where the bearings are vibrates like billyo.

    The link below is to a video of the noise.

    I’m thinking of several things at could be causing it.

    Thrust bearings
    Servo motor giving up
    Servo motor needing tuning but that might mask a mechanical issue.

    Although parts that have been coming off have been dimensionally okay.

    The machine has linear scales in the X and Y.

    The picture is the drive that was replaced.

    If anyone is able to chime in that would be great

    It does not sound like a thrust bearing to me. I would think it would be more consistent or only when it changes directions. Is this machine a box way machine? Issue with the gibbs?

    To me it sounds like a lack of lubrication scream. It could be on the ways, or in the nut.
