Direct Drive Rotary Table, also called as a direct drive or DDS rotary table, is an ergonomic type of rotary table usually used for the continuous use that is many times more accurate and versatile than the standard face or rack and pinion machines. The DDS rotary is usually very expensive, but nevertheless is worth the price in the long run.
It has no moving parts, so it is very simple to use, and therefore you don’t need any special experience in mechanical work. A user can operate this table from a seated position. This table is designed with the aim of enabling maximum comfort and ease in operating it. There are many different models available in the market today, each with its own unique features.
A Direct Drive Rotary is made up of two steel shafts that are connected together by a metal chain. These shafts are made up of helical bearings and the chain is attached to them via a pulley system. The chains are very smooth in their movements as they have no sharp points, but are instead made up of spirals and circles, which helps to maintain the smoothness of the movement of the table. They are equipped with a number of different sensors that measure the position and velocity of the chain to control the rotation of the table.
One disadvantage of a Direct Drive Rotary is that they have a higher rate of wear and tear than other models. They are therefore more prone to wear and tear, especially when they are used in high-pressure applications like welding. However, they are able to cope up with such stress by increasing their strength and durability.
Another disadvantage of the Direct Drive Table is that it requires more space to install the machine because of its size. However, this problem can be overcome if the table is used in a well-ventilated area where it is not exposed to extreme heat. This model is ideal for those who have small workshops or do not have sufficient space for a large table. In addition, the models that have been designed for welding also come with a locking mechanism that prevents the operator from lifting the table to its height while welding.
These tables are highly recommended for both hobbyists and professionals in the industry, as it has a wide range of applications. It is the perfect tool to be used for the purpose of precision machining and high precision applications. It can be used to engrave and stamp, engrave letters and logos and even in making decorative patterns on the metal surfaces.
