In our commitment to safeguard the reliability of our machines, one thing we have done is change the small gear on the turntable drive, which now has a milled steel-based design (this was previously an injection-molded POM part).
This means the small gear is no longer considered a wear part and, therefore, it is no longer sold separately as a spare part – it is sold together with the stepper drive as one sub-assembly. Next, we optimized the double-gear axle fixation, meaning a screw fixation instead of circlips. This results in faster and easier service.
These changes came into effect as of July 4th, 2017 with spare part number 1818451-SP.
To help you visualize the changes, please see the images below.
