These rack & pinion drives are perfect for an array of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and material handling systems. Weighty load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily dealt with with these drives. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Eliminates the necessity for another mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between your rack and rail is not necessary
Space-saving, 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 selection of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, it is possible to achieve optimal styles for almost any application constraints. For recommendations on how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please consult the factory.
Teeth: The teeth are the portion of the gear that makes contact with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh jointly the pitch must 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 can exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks mount directly to most regular linear guides, eliminating the necessity for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:
Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently gear rack for railway axle depending on the particular section of the gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, however, are the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius is the distance from the guts of the gear to the bottom of the teeth while the addendum radius (also called the “pitch” radius) is the distance from the center of the apparatus to the outside of the teeth.
In order to ensure that the apparatus rack you purchase is right for your application, seek out a reliable and experienced gear rack manufacturer who will take time to listen to your application to be able to suggest the proper product. Depending on the application and the requirements of this application, the teeth on the gear rack may need to be spaced a certain way in order to provide appropriate torque and performance. This small change could make an environment of difference in how your steering program or railway track functions.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and so are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to some other. Gears are described by two important items: radius and quantity of the teeth. They are typically mounted, or connected to other parts, with a shaft or base.
