The Advantages of a Direct Drive Rotary Table
Direct Drive Rotary Table, sometimes called a screw-drive or screw ball, is a type of rotary table designed to be used for the continuous performance that is many times more accurate and agile than conventional rack and pinion or face gears. These are commonly found in high-performance mechanical applications, where fast movements can be made. There is no moving mass that has to be moved in order for the device to perform its function, this saves time and energy as well as making the rotational motion much more efficient.
A direct drive rotary table has an axis that moves in a fixed direction. It has an outer ball that is driven by a motor that is attached to the back of the device. The ball has a screw on one end that fits into the ball gear. The screw then turns a chain that is on the inside of the ball.
One of the advantages of using this type of rotary table is that there is no ball shaft that moves around as well as gears would. Instead, the screw ball is mounted on the gear shaft. This means that it can spin without having to move around with the gear. As the screw rotates, the chain also rotates. This enables the rotational motion of the screw to be greater than a gear would have.
Because of this advantage, a direct drive rotary table has greater torque and can perform a much more accurate, quick rotation than a conventional or rack and pinion table. In addition, because there is no moving mass, the rotational motion is less restricted. If the torque is greater on one side of the rotation, then the table can rotate faster or rotate at a different angle than a conventional screw ball or roller type table.
There are many different types of these devices and they come in different sizes and designs. Most of the time, they are constructed from a heavy-duty steel and have a steel ball gear with a wooden spindle. Many of them have wheels to enable them to be moved in a vertical position and some are mounted on casters.
The advantage of the table is that there is no ball on the table that has to be changed, which means the table is easy to maintain. It is also much easier to keep the table up to date with the latest technology. and the new technology because the design is not affected by the previous years of the table. The table can be used in a variety of applications including industrial and high performance. These tables are very versatile and can be used in any area where speed, accuracy is important.
