Default Z axis slips on up travel after using FTC

This issue only seems to occur occasionally once running projects with multiple tool changes.

Occasionally, after a tool is measured on the FTC sensor and it begins its rapid Z travel upwards before heading back to the home position, the Z axis will seem to almost bind up and not move much at all. It thinks that it is raising all the way up, however most times it's barely high enough to clear the table before it begins moving back to the home position. Thankfully I've been within reach of the emergency stop before snapping a tool.

I do regular maintenance every week to include cleaning out and lubing. There seems to be no binding and no audible noise coming from movement on that axis.

any ideas?

Running a stinger I sr23 with 1kw spindle, z-assist is set at 40psi.

I'm still new but fortunate to not have had this issue yet. I am sure the more experienced on here could comment or have you spoken with tech support? I have found them to be great guys to work with as well.

Good Luck!
