A machine builder has an app to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and wish to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To keep up accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electric preloading.

The curved rack would be a special design simply by the client based on the device requirements and the look envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the look of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and concur that it would be able to handle the application loading. The rack was created as a particular item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast encounter and knowledge in gear production.

A precision planetary reducer was selected with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to operate a vehicle on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the amount of torque needed at the reducer output. Gear Racks 11The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a huge reduction ratio to find the motor increase as high as possible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is a pair of gears which convert rotational motion into linear movement. A circular equipment known as the pinion engages tooth on a linear equipment bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion into the linear movement of the apparatus rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a few of the machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also used in robotics, CNC routers, material gear rack for Aerospace Industry handling systems, automation systems, and the aerospace market.

We also offer custom gear rack manufacturing. We can manufacture gear racks in a variety of materials such as for example plastic, brass, metal and aluminum. We are able to also produce spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, equipment clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear share, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We are able to also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of equipment types complete or can cut gear teeth upon consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other special gears for the next industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, commercial, energy, general sector and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining solutions to customer specifications.
