A machine builder comes with an software to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and wish to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To keep up accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.

The curved rack will be a special design simply by the client based on the device requirements and the design 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 confirm that it would end up being able to handle the application form loading. The rack was produced as a particular item and used ATLANTA’s vast experience 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 needed at the reducer gear rack for Aerospace Industry china result. The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a sizable reduction ratio to find the motor increase as high as possible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. 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, therefore translating the rotational movement of the pinion into the linear movement of the gear rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a few of the machines using gear racks. Gear racks are also used in robotics, CNC routers, materials managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.

We also offer custom gear rack manufacturing. We can manufacture gear racks in various materials such as for example plastic, brass, metal and aluminum. We can also produce 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 can also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of gear types complete or will certainly cut gear teeth on client supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other special gears for the next industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, commercial, energy, general sector and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific study and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining solutions to customer specifications.
