These rack & pinion drives are ideal for a wide variety of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials handling systems. Heavy load capacities and duty gear rack for railway axle cycles can also be easily dealt with with these drives. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Eliminates the need for a separate mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between the rack and rail is not necessary
Space-conserving, performance optimized designs can be achieved
Different quality racks available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail off of machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide variety of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, it is possible to achieve optimal styles for almost any application constraints. For recommendations about how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please consult the factory.
Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the gear that makes contact with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh with each other the pitch must be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a equipment is the distance between comparative points of adjacent teeth. When the teeth of gears mesh properly they prevent slipping and can exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks install directly to most regular linear manuals, eliminating the necessity for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:
Radius: The gear radius is defined differently depending on the particular portion of the gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, nevertheless, are the root radius and the addendum radius. The root radius is the distance from the center of the gear to the base of the teeth as the addendum radius (also called the “pitch” radius) may be the distance from the guts of the gear to the outside of the teeth.
In order to make sure that the gear rack you purchase is right for the application, seek out a reliable and experienced gear rack manufacturer who’ll take the time to pay attention to your application in order to suggest the right product. Depending on your application and the requirements of this application, the teeth on the gear rack may need to become spaced a particular way in order to provide correct torque and performance. This small change can make an environment 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 motion from one shaft to some other. Gears are described by two essential items: radius and quantity of teeth. They are typically mounted, or linked to other parts, via a shaft or base.
