Or can CNC programs take the slack into account and compensate to get the accuracy you want?
Under a few conditions backlash compensation works, but not many. Cutting a circle for instance, it won't work. It will work for doing a hole pattern, but in general it will not work when continuous cutting. The only real way to get accuracy is to have zero backlash.
