I found that there was a few other settings that I needed to change – feedrate was one of them. Here is my current config file settings – seems to be doing very nicely.

default_feed_rate 4000 # Default rate ( mm/minute ) for G1/G2/G3 moves
default_seek_rate 4000 # Default rate ( mm/minute ) for G0 moves
mm_per_arc_segment 0.0 # Fixed length for line segments that divide arcs 0 to disable
mm_max_arc_error 0.01 # The maximum error for line segments that divide arcs 0 to disable
# note it is invalid for both the above be 0
# if both are used, will use largest segment length based on radius

# Arm solution configuration : Cartesian robot. Translates mm positions into stepper positions
alpha_steps_per_mm 200 # Steps per mm for alpha stepper
beta_steps_per_mm 150 # Steps per mm for beta stepper
gamma_steps_per_mm 4535.44 # Steps per mm for gamma stepper

# Planner module configuration : Look-ahead and acceleration configuration
planner_queue_size 32 # DO NOT CHANGE THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING
acceleration 500 # Acceleration in mm/second/second.
z_acceleration 35 # Acceleration for Z only moves in mm/s^2, 0 uses acceleration which is the default.
junction_deviation 0.05 # Similar to the old “max_jerk”, in millimeters,
# see https://github.com/grbl/grbl/blob/master/planner.c
# and https://github.com/grbl/grbl/wiki/Configuring-Grbl-v0.8
# Lower values mean being more careful, higher values means being
# faster and have more jerk
#z_junction_deviation 0.0 # for Z only moves, -1 uses junction_deviation, zero disables junction_deviation on z moves

# Stepper module configuration
microseconds_per_step_pulse 1 # Duration of step pulses to stepper drivers, in microseconds
base_stepping_frequency 100000 # Base frequency for stepping

# Cartesian axis speed limits
x_axis_max_speed 11000 # mm/min

alpha_en_pin 0.4 # Pin for alpha enable pin
alpha_current 1.5 # X stepper motor current

# optional order in which axis will home, default is they all home at the same time,

homing_order XYZ # x axis followed by y then z last

# optional enable limit switches, actions will stop if any enabled limit switch is triggered
