Direct Drive Rotary Table is an exceptionally unique type of rotary table typically used to the constant and varied motion that is required to operate more frequently than conventional rack and pinion rotaries or other face gears. It is designed with the need of constant contact, speed, and accuracy in mind.
Direct drive rotary table was developed by the manufacturer of rotocraft and motocross bicycles in order to create the most efficient and precise rotary devices in the industry. Because of this, it can be used in a wide variety of applications. Some of the uses include racing (bicycle racing), indoor and outdoor exercise, precision work, hobbyists and mechanics. Even for sports such as golf, golfing, baseball, softball, and other similar game, it provides the required precision and speed.
One of the unique features of this table is its ability to provide consistent motion. This is because the rotation is achieved through a shaft rather than a pinion gear. The rotational speed of this table is usually a significant factor in the amount of torque needed to perform the task. Therefore, it must have great torque and strength as well.
Because the table can be designed to run on either a standard battery or solar panel, the cost to purchase and operate this table is considerably less than most other rotary equipment. The disadvantage of using the direct drive rotary table is that it is much heavier and more complex to install than other types of rotaries. This heavy weight makes it difficult to install in tight spaces and difficult to transport. In addition, it is not easy to find a battery for a direct drive rotary table as there are only a limited number of batteries currently available for this type of table.
To date, it is considered that the cost to own a Direct Drive Rotary Table will be considerably more expensive than other rotaries. However, if the owner uses the rotary machine regularly and maintains the machine properly, it is possible to reduce the expense of owning the rotary. The maintenance of the rotary machine includes regular cleaning and oiling of the motor, replacing bolts and nut in the shaft and bearings, lubricating the wheels and belts, and brushes and adjusting the speed control.
Although the cost of this table can be higher than other rotaries, it still offers many advantages. These include the ability to perform tasks that would not otherwise be possible with a conventional rotary.
