We try to surpass your targets and ensure your success with our quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had manufactured their own precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also required this because their critical customers demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wished to find a gear rack provider who could attain the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide range of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which got a total pitch deviation of significantly 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 achieve the high rack strength the customer required, the root of the teeth were hardened along 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 complicated gears and sprockets that no various other manufacturers can produce. The part shown here is a helical equipment rack that can be used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The gear rack is 6′ lengthy, includes a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is made from 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. Often customers contact us because OEM parts are no longer available or are price prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the quality of replacement parts made by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.
Many of our projects are exclusive within the market and represent one of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide selection of rare gear shaping tools in addition to advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to produce a vast selection of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, forms, and patterns.
The rack was produced on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only pleased to find a manufacturer with the capacity of producing the component; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their goals. We produced this helical gear rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. For additional details about this custom equipment rack machining project, e mail us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system contains a rack (or a “linear equipment”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be straight or helical, although helical teeth are often used because of their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force that can be transmitted is basically determined by the tooth pitch and the size of the pinion.
