Axial load on motor

You cannot, nobody can, hence with the increase of momentum, be it due to heavyer components of due to higher accelerations/deccelerations, the ony cures are; bigger motor, bigge belt/ballscrew, or you might avoid printing, and that is the total cure, no load on the motors at all.
