The X-axis is build upon a solid aluminium profile. To move the axis a 15mm linear bearing and HDT5 timing belt are used. The belt disk on the opposite side of the motor is supported by two bearings. The motor is a 62W BLDC motor with 500 imp/rev encoder (2000 imp/rev in X4 mode). The movement area is 620mm. Mounted on top of the axis a cable channel for guiding the cables that run to the place head is also used to hold the X-axis motor PCB. The PCB also connects to the reference switch of the X-axis.
The X-axis can move beyond the machine bed to reach the feeder blocks that are mounted on both sides of the machine.
