A machine builder comes with an software to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To maintain 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 design envelope they have to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the look of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and concur that it would become able to handle the application loading. The rack was produced as a particular item and used ATLANTA’s vast experience and knowledge in equipment production.
A precision planetary reducer was selected with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to drive on the rack. The flanged pinion offered a compact style to reduce the quantity of torque necessary at the reducer result. The reducer supplied a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to have the motor increase as high as gear rack for Aerospace Industry china feasible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is a couple of gears which convert rotational motion into linear motion. A circular gear called the pinion engages tooth on a linear equipment bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear motion of the gear rack.
Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a few of the machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also used in robotics, CNC routers, materials managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace market.
We also offer customized gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in a variety of materials such as for example 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 stock, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We can also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of equipment types complete or will cut gear teeth on client supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other unique gears for the following industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general industry and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific research and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining solutions to customer specifications.
