One Response so far.

    BoXZY claims industrial grade C5 ballscrews and 4 micron positioning, but their pictures show Chinese C7 transport grade rolled ballscrews.

    C5 grade “ground” ballscrews – typically used for precision positioning- have 18 micron error per 300 mm of travel and cost $500 each. Transport grade C7 “rolled” ballscrews typically have 50 micron error per 300 mm.

    That’s why they’re called transport grade.

    They surely are not using C5 ground ballscrews at $500 each, so the “4 micron” resolution is pure fantasy.
