Whats the purpose of a backlash screw and plate?

reduce vibration?

keep the main bolt from popping out of the plate when direction is changed?

It is to keep tension on the lead screw so there is no slack in the movement of that axis. With out it there is slop in the movement witch in turn leads to very crappie cuts.
