A machine builder comes with an program to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and would like to use a curved rack and gear rack for Aerospace Industry pinion drive to do this. To keep accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.

The curved rack would be a special design simply by the client based on the machine requirements and the look envelope they have to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the look of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and confirm that it would be able to handle the application loading. The rack was created as a particular item and used ATLANTA’s vast experience and knowledge in gear production.

A precision planetary reducer was selected with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to operate a vehicle on the rack. The flanged pinion offered a compact design to reduce the quantity of torque necessary at the reducer output. The reducer offered 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 gear rack? A rack and pinion can be a pair of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular gear known as the pinion engages tooth on a linear gear bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear motion of the apparatus rack.

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

We also offer customized gear rack production. We can manufacture gear racks in a variety of materials such as for example plastic, brass, steel and aluminum. We are able to also manufacture spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, equipment clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear stock, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We are able to also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of gear types complete or will certainly cut gear teeth on consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other unique gears for the next industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general industry and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific study and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining methods to customer specifications.
