A machine builder has an app to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and want to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve 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 by the customer based on the device requirements and the look envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the design of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and concur that it would be able to handle the application form loading. The rack was created as a particular item and used 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 operate a vehicle on the rack. The flanged pinion provided 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 sizable reduction ratio to get the motor speed up as high as feasible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is definitely a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear movement. A circular equipment called the pinion engages tooth on a linear equipment bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion into the linear motion 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 managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace market.

We also offer customized gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in various materials such as for example plastic, brass, steel and gear rack for Aerospace Industry 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 manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of gear 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, defense and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general market and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining methods to customer specifications.
