Some methods adjust the gears to a set tooth clearance during initial assembly. With this approach, backlash eventually increases due to wear, which requires readjustment.

hit the lock. This is your backlash at this position of the X axis. Run this backlash test with the table all the way to the right, in the middle, and all the way to the left. If the numbers are close to each other, then the wear is either even or small. On my mill I found 0.040" of backlash on the right end, 0.044" in the center, and 0.043 ...

Backlash Parameter Description Backlash parameter values allow the control to compensate for the physical limitations of the ball screw when changing tool direction. Values are entered in tenths (ten-thouhs of an inch). The control stores three values for the X-axis and the Y-axis (at center, at negative limit, at positive limit) and one value

Backlash is a measurable quantity. The simplest way to measure it in a screw and nut is to push the nut as far as it will go in one direction and then to measure how far it can move in the other direction. Figure 2 shows the same …

BILLJ, My 50-50-50 rule which you may want to consider. 50% - The max velocity is 50% of where your steppers will start to skip. 50% - Set the shuttle Wheel setting in configuration to .0050 to .050 ( .5 too slow ) 50% - Backlash speed. This is a good starting point and refine upward, but always leave say 30% headroom.

The typical Sieg X2 mini-mill [HF 44991, Grizzly G8689, Micro-Mark & others] has a lot of backlash in the Z-axis.In my case it was .053-inches, which was almost a full turn of the fine-adjust knob. I heard that putting a shim behind the rack on the column would help by causing it to mesh tighter with the pinion gear in the head.

A ball nut with all the backlash removed is called preloaded. There are several ways to reduce or eliminate the backlash in a ball screw assembly: At the factory level we can select ball sizes to minimize the backlash. This works well for small lead to diameter ratios, like a 5x25mm. In some cases we can preload a ball nut in this way.

Reducing X Axis Backlash on a RF-30 Mill/Drill, Version 1.2 By R. G. Sparber Copyleft protects this document. 1 Conclusion I was able to reduce X axis backlash to 0.002 inches without binding of the leadscrew. This was accomplished by preloading the bearings, modifying the take up nut, preventing any slip in the gib, and aligning the leadscrew.

Below, are the common parameters and program to run backlash test. Remember to Write down original values first!!! Also, you may want to set the backlash comp first to zero to get the total amount of backlash to make sure it is not excessive. Reading should usually be below .008. Anything above .010 you might want to consider taking a closer look.

A sure way of telling if you need to set the backlash in X or Y is to mill bore a large hole then run an indicator around the hole paying special attention to the four quadrants. If the indicator jumps .001 or more in the quadrants you may be way overdue for a backlash resetting. Fadals have backlash setting for center, left, and right ends of ...
