For a long time, a machine tool builder had manufactured their very own precision gear racks to gear rack for Machine Tool Industry attain ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also required this because their vital clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning with no error compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack provider who could obtain the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide selection of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which acquired 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 main of the teeth were hardened together 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 are capable of manufacturing complex gears and sprockets that no various other manufacturers can create. The part shown this is a helical gear rack that is used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ long, 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 unable to find someone with the capability to slice the required size of helical rack. Often customers e mail us because OEM parts are no more available or are price prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few projects are exclusive within the market and represent many of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain an array of rare gear shaping equipment along with advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to make a vast selection of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, designs, and patterns.

The rack was produced on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The client was not only very happy to find a producer capable of producing the part; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their goals. We created this helical equipment 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 gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be directly or helical, although helical teeth are often used because of their higher load capacity and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force that can be transmitted is basically determined by the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
