These rack & pinion drives are ideal for a wide range of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and material handling systems. Heavy load capacities and duty cycles can also be easily taken care of with these drives. Industries served include Materials Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.

Eliminates the necessity for another mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between the rack and rail is not necessary
Space-saving, performance optimized designs can be achieved
Different quality racks available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail from machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide range of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, you’ll be able to achieve optimal designs for every application constraints. For suggestions on how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please consult the factory.

Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the gear that makes contact with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh collectively the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear may be the distance between equivalent points of adjacent teeth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh properly they prevent slipping and may exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks attach directly to most regular linear manuals, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving time and money. Key benefits include:

Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently based on the particular section of the apparatus being discussed. Both most relevant measurements, however, are the root radius and the gear rack for railway axle addendum radius. The main radius may be the distance from the center of the gear to the bottom of the teeth while the addendum radius (also called the “pitch” radius) may be the distance from the center of the apparatus to the outside of the teeth.

In order to make sure that the gear rack you get is right for your application, seek out a reliable and experienced gear rack manufacturer who will take the time to pay attention to your application in order to suggest the right product. Depending on the application and the requirements of that application, the teeth on the gear rack may need to end up being spaced a specific way in order to provide appropriate torque and efficiency. This small change can make an environment of difference in how your steering system or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to another. Gears are described by two important items: radius and number of tooth. They are typically mounted, or linked to other parts, with a shaft or base.
