We aim to surpass your goals and ensure your success with our quality.
For years, a machine tool builder had produced their personal precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also required this because their essential clients demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning with no mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to find a gear rack supplier who could obtain the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide range of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which experienced a complete pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a one meter length. The real pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To achieve the high rack strength the customer required, the main of one’s teeth were hardened along with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized to achieve the necessary flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we are capable of manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no various other manufacturers can create. The part shown here is a helical gear rack that is used on a Maag gear manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ long, includes a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 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 slice the required size of helical rack. Often customers contact us because OEM parts are no longer available or are cost prohibitive. Often, clients have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the product gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china quality their OEM parts.

Many of our projects are exclusive within the sector and represent many of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain an array of rare gear shaping tools in addition to advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to produce a vast selection of gear, sprocket, work, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.

The rack was manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only very happy to find a producer with the capacity of producing the part; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their targets. We created this helical gear rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information about this custom equipment rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system includes a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be straight or helical, although helical tooth 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 largely determined by the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
