A machine builder comes with an software to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and wish to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To keep up accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove gear rack for Aerospace Industry china backlash using electric preloading.

The curved rack will be a special design by the client based on the device requirements and the look envelope they have 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 end up being able to handle the application form loading. The rack was produced as a particular item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast encounter and knowledge in equipment production.

A precision planetary reducer was chosen with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to drive on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact design to reduce the quantity of torque needed at the reducer result. The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a huge reduction ratio to find the motor increase as high as feasible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is usually a couple of gears which convert rotational motion into linear motion. A circular equipment called the pinion engages teeth on a linear equipment bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational motion of the pinion into the linear movement of the gear rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines certainly are a few of the machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, materials handling systems, automation systems, and the aerospace market.

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 can also manufacture spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, gear clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear share, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We are able to also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of equipment types complete or can cut gear teeth on customer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other particular gears for the following industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general industry and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific study and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining methods to customer specifications.
