A machine builder has an software to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and would like to use a curved rack and gear rack for Aerospace Industry china pinion drive to do this. To keep up accurate positioning, there would be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electric preloading.

The curved rack would 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 end up being able to handle the application loading. The rack was created as a particular item and used ATLANTA’s vast encounter 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 design to reduce the quantity of torque necessary at the reducer result. The reducer offered a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to obtain the motor increase as high as possible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular equipment known as the pinion engages the teeth on a linear gear bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational motion of the pinion into the linear movement of the apparatus rack.

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

We also offer customized gear rack production. We can manufacture gear racks in a variety of materials such as 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 are able to also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of equipment types complete or will cut gear teeth upon consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other special gears for the following industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general industry and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining methods to customer specifications.
