A machine builder comes with an application to rotate tooling around an Aerospace gear rack for Aerospace Industry china element and want to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To maintain accurate positioning, there would 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 design envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the customer on the look of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and concur that it would become able to handle the application loading. The rack was produced as a particular item and used 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 offered a compact style to reduce the quantity of torque required at the reducer output. The reducer supplied a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to obtain the motor increase as high as possible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is a pair of gears which convert rotational motion into linear motion. A circular equipment known as the pinion engages the teeth on a linear gear bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational motion of the pinion in to the linear motion of the apparatus rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a several machines using gear racks. Gear racks are also used in robotics, CNC routers, material handling systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.

We also offer customized 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 can also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of gear types complete or will certainly cut gear teeth upon consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other unique gears for the following industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, commercial, energy, general sector and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific research and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining solutions to customer specifications.
