We try to surpass your expectations and make sure your success with our quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their own precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also needed this because their critical clients demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning without any error compensation on the axis.
To save costs, they wished to look for a gear rack supplier who could attain the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide selection of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which experienced a total pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a a single meter length. The actual pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To attain the high rack power the customer required, the root of one’s teeth were hardened combined with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized to achieve the needed flatness tolerances on the trunk and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we can handle manufacturing complex gears and sprockets that no other manufacturers can create. The part shown here is a helical gear rack that is used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ lengthy, includes a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 4130 steel.
The customer needed a replacement part which is essential to the operation of their machine and had previously been struggling to find someone with the capacity to cut the required size of helical rack. Many times customers contact us because OEM parts are no longer available or are cost prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the grade of replacement parts produced by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.
Many of our projects are unique within the market and represent probably the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide variety of rare gear shaping gear as well as advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to make a vast array of gear, sprocket, work, and rack sizes, designs, and patterns.
The rack was manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The client was not only pleased to find a manufacturer with the capacity of producing the part; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their anticipations. We created this helical gear rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information regarding this custom gear rack machining project, e mail us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system contains a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be straight or helical, although helical the teeth are often used because of their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force which can be transmitted is basically determined by the tooth pitch and the size of the pinion.
