A machine builder comes with an application to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and wish to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To maintain accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.

The curved rack will be a special design by the client based on the machine requirements and the design envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the customer on the design of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and confirm that it would become able to handle the application form loading. The rack was created as a special item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast experience and knowledge in gear production.

A precision planetary reducer was selected with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to drive on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the amount of torque needed at the reducer output. The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a huge reduction ratio to have the motor speed up as high as feasible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion can be a pair of gears which convert rotational motion into linear movement. A circular gear called the pinion engages teeth on a linear equipment bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, therefore translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear motion of the gear rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines certainly are a several machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also used in robotics, CNC routers, materials managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace sector.

We also offer custom gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in various materials such as for example plastic, brass, steel and aluminum. We are able to also manufacture spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, equipment clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear stock, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We can also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of gear types gear rack for Aerospace Industry china complete or will certainly cut gear teeth on client supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other unique gears for the next industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, commercial, energy, general market and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific research and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using modern machining solutions to customer specifications.
