What do I need to service the XY axis wheels and pinions?

This article shows you what you need to service the wheels and pinions, and what is included in your maintenance wheel kits.

< Previous | List | Next >

Over time, wheels on the X and Y axis will begin to wear. For this reason we offer a maintenance wheel kit which contains all the necessary components to replace them.

You won’t need to replace the wheels very often, but it is still a good idea to service the axis regularly so that you know if they do need replacing. 

You don’t need to replace the pinions - these will just need cleaning, along with the racks and wheel tracks. 

Where can I get a wheel replacement kit? 

Email our sales team at sales@yetitool.com and ask for a maintenance wheel kit. 

One maintenance wheel kit has enough parts to replace the wheels on one axis. 

If you need to replace the wheels on both X and Y axes at the same time, you will need two kits.

Both axes use the same type of wheels. 

What’s in the maintenance kit?

The maintenance wheel kit includes all of the necessary components needed for maintenance, here is an example of a Y axis maintenance wheel kit.

A: Initial wheel position reference card

B: Wheel tyre

C: Dome flange torx screws

D: Bearing adjuster metal

E: Loctite

F: Bearings 

G: Wheel adjustment spanner

Wheel and pinion servicing guides for each axis

This maintenance kit can then be used together with our guides to service your relevant axis.
