Thanks for the inquiry. We used MCD (Motion Control Dia) tool to verify if that is caused by VRM board. No respond(I means the related axis was off) was detected. we swapped that board to other machine, the VRM card was good.... X axis was stopped, t

Wouldn't the VRM linear motors need to be replaced eventually? How long do they generally last on the genesis? Replacing a ball and screw is not cost prohibitive but the linear motors sounds like it would be. Wouldn't that be the life of a genesis

Thanks for responding. Which one do you like better GI14 or GC60? I agree with you that VRM motors are better.

oh great, I'll check that out, can I just swap that between the two machines to check? Is that module on the front of the machine or on the back with the VRM modules? I'm pretty new to finding stuff on the machines!

I have 2 older genesis machines currently down due to VRM Servo issues. I'm debating whether its better to stock up on some spares as I'm finding spares cheap currently. How often do they go out and how long should they last? Any other parts that

@Reckless on GI14 machine, we have around 90k picks per week. About maintenance I rly can not say, since I'm head of programming and not maintenance. But as far as I know GI14 is rly complex just as @Comatose said, but it is much different then GC6

Thank you for your reply. I will attach another photo to explain. I don't really understand what they do other than they are part of the Voltage Regulator Module. What I also read on other forums was that they are potted or encapsulated and they sh
