gear rack for Machine Tool Industry

This integrated and coordinated development of thermoforming machines and tools is our most important customer benefit and unique on the thermoforming market. With the considerable know-how of our skilled experts in both device and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a unique synergy effect that leads to an increased service lifestyle of both machine and tools, along with an optimal formed part quality. We try to surpass your targets and ensure your success with this quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their personal precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also needed this because their vital customers demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack supplier who could achieve the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which got a complete pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a 1 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 root of one’s teeth were hardened together with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was used to achieve the required 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 equipment manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ lengthy, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 4130 steel.

The customer needed an upgraded part which is necessary to the procedure of their machine and had previously been struggling to find someone with the capacity to slice the required size of helical rack. Often customers e mail us because OEM parts are no more available or are cost 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 gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china market and represent some of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide range of rare gear shaping devices along with advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to produce a vast selection of gear, sprocket, work, and rack sizes, designs, and patterns.

The rack was manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The client was not only pleased to find a manufacturer capable of producing the component; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their expectations. We created this helical gear rack with a lead time of only two weeks. For additional information about this custom equipment rack machining project, e mail us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system includes a rack (or a “linear equipment”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be straight or helical, although helical the teeth are often used due to their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force which can be transmitted is largely determined by the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
