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 managed with these drives. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.

Eliminates the need for another mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between the rack and rail isn’t necessary
Space-conserving, performance optimized designs may be accomplished
Different quality racks available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail off of machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide range of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, it is possible to achieve optimal designs for almost any gear rack for railway axle application constraints. For recommendations on how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your style, please consult the factory.

Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the apparatus that makes contact with another gear. In order for two gears to mesh with each other the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear is the distance between equivalent points of adjacent tooth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh properly they prevent slipping and will exhibit efficiencies of up to 98%.
Our Integrated Racks mount directly to most regular linear guides, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:

Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently depending on the particular portion of the gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, nevertheless, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The root radius may be the distance from the guts of the gear to the base of the teeth as the addendum radius (also known as the “pitch” radius) is 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 the application, seek out a trusted and skilled gear rack manufacturer who’ll take time to listen to your application to be able to suggest the right product. Depending on your application and the requirements of that application, one’s teeth on the gear rack may need to end up being spaced a certain way in order to provide correct torque and efficiency. This small change could make an environment of difference in how your steering system or railway track functions.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via the teeth and are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to another. Gears are described by two essential items: radius and number of teeth. They are usually mounted, or linked to other parts, via a shaft or base.
