Stepper motor upgrade
Stepper motor upgrade
I have a Prusa i3 and I’m going through a reconstruction phase. I completely changed the design and now fully reconstructed I ran across a problem with the heat bed attached to the z-axis this configuration seem to have damaged the stepper motors. Does anyone know of a stepper motor that will be powerful enough to handle the strain and drive the heat bed and carriage during prints? The weight of the carriage is approximately 3-5lbs. and I was using the NEMA 17 motor that came stock with the Prusa i3. Below is an image of my current setup.
Any help or Ideas would be great. Thanks Makers!
The type stepper I have came stock with my kit. The only information that I can find on it is NEMA 17 Stepper by Kysan

- Cloudray Stepper Motor
Cloudray Stepper Motor Series has set the standard for quality, reliability, and durability in stepping motors. The precision of our Torque Power motors is matched only by the dependability of their performance. All Torque Power motors are bi-directional and totally enclosed with permanently lubricated ball bearings for long-lasting, smooth operation.
Cloudray stepper motor series are widely used in medical instruments, robotics, 3D printers, extruders, laser cutters, engraving machine, textile equipment, packaging machinery, CNC machines, etc.High Torque, High Precision and Long life is Cloudray's core advantages
Low vibration,Low heating, No loss of step
Fast Response,Better Acceleration Performance
Thanks to a robust design they can be selected for the harshest environments. Precise, open-loop, speed and position control can be achieved with the application of full step, half step, or microstepping electronics.Higher Resolution，Avoidance of Resonance Regions
Stepping angle is adjustable( rang in 18°±5%）， 0.9 °stepper motor's stepping angle is smaller, fineness is higher and positioning is more accurate.Avoiding vibration,runs more smoothly and gets lower noise.Sturdy structure, extremely long lifeHigh quality materials including bearings and shaft made in JapanRobust assembly, high speed range, and exceptional performance in even the harshest environments make Cloudray Stepper Motors the perfect solution for demanding positioning applications.Short length and light weight allow them to be used in highly integrated systems
Stepper motor applicationCloudray stepper motor and Stepping Motor Driver are widely used in engraving machine, cutting plotter, textile machine, 3D printer, medical devices,stage lighting equipment, robot, CNC machine, music fountain and other industrial automatic equipment.
