These rack & pinion drives are perfect for a wide range of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials gear rack for railway axle handling systems. Large load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Eliminates the need for another mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between the 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 from machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide variety of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, you’ll be able to achieve optimal styles for every application constraints. For suggestions about how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your style, please consult the factory.
Teeth: The teeth are the portion of the apparatus that makes connection with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh together the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a equipment may be the distance between equivalent points of adjacent tooth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and may exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks mount directly to most standard linear manuals, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:
Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently based on the particular section of the gear being discussed. Both most relevant measurements, however, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The root radius may be 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 gear to the outside of the teeth.
In order to ensure that the gear rack you purchase is right for your application, seek out a reliable and experienced gear rack manufacturer who will take time to pay attention to your application in order to suggest the proper product. Depending on the application and the requirements of that application, one’s teeth on the gear rack might need to be spaced a particular way in order to provide proper torque and effectiveness. This small change can make a world of difference in how your steering program or railway track functions.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via the teeth and so are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to some other. Gears are defined by two important items: radius and amount of the teeth. They are usually mounted, or connected to other parts, via a shaft or base.
