New to this forum and hoping someone can guide me in the right direction.
Our company recently purchased a new ACT DMCIII milling machine with an added 4th axis. The rotary table was appealing because it was advertised as having "zero backlash". 2 tables later we find this is not the case. In fact, the backlash was so bad that we actually tried to secure $3000 part with bungee cords to stabilize it.
What I am wondering is if anyone can recommend a good 4th axis that has very little or no backlash (or at the very least is adjustable down to 0). I am not an engineer and am not looking to redesign an existing part. I just want to find the best possible, out of the box 4th axis rotary table that will work with our new machine.
Thanks for your comments!
