A machine builder comes with an app to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To keep up accurate positioning, there would 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 look envelope they have to work with.
ATLANTA was able to work with the client on the look of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and concur that it would be 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 selected with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to drive on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the quantity of torque required at the reducer output. The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to get the motor increase as high as feasible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is definitely a set of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular gear called the pinion engages the teeth on a linear gear bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion into the linear motion of the gear rack.

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

We also offer customized gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in a variety of materials such as for example plastic, brass, steel and aluminum. We are able to also produce spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, equipment 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 will cut gear teeth on consumer 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, gear rack for Aerospace Industry china 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.
