They run quieter compared to the straight, especially at high speeds
They have a higher contact ratio (the number of effective teeth engaged) than straight, which increases the load carrying capacity
Their lengths are great circular numbers, e.g. 500.0 mm and 1,000.0 mm, for easy integration with machine bed lengths; Directly racks lengths are constantly a multiple of pi., e.g. 502.65 mm and 1005.31 mm.
A rack and pinion is a type of linear actuator that comprises a couple of gears which convert rotational motion into linear motion. This combination of Rack gears and Spur gears are usually called “Rack and Pinion”. Rack and pinion combinations are often used as part of a straightforward linear actuator, where the rotation of a shaft driven yourself or by a motor is changed into linear motion.
For customer’s that require a more accurate movement than ordinary rack and pinion combinations can’t provide, our Anti-backlash spur gears can be found to be used as pinion gears with our Rack Gears.
The rack product range contains metric pitches from module 1.0 to 16.0, with linear force capacities as high as 92,000 lb. Rack styles include helical, directly (spur), integrated and round. Rack lengths up to 3.00 meters are available regular, with unlimited travels lengths possible by mounting segments end-to-end.
Helical versus Directly: The helical style provides many key benefits over the straight style, including:
These linear gearrack china drives are ideal for an array of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, choose & place robots, CNC routers and material handling systems. Heavy load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Material Managing, Automation, Automotive, Aerospace, Machine Device and Robotics.
Timing belts for linear actuators are usually manufactured from polyurethane reinforced with internal metal or Kevlar cords. The most common tooth geometry for belts in linear actuators may be the AT profile, which has a large tooth width that provides high level of resistance against shear forces. On the driven end of the actuator (where the electric motor is attached) a precision-machined toothed pulley engages with the belt, while on the non-driven end, a flat pulley simply provides assistance. The non-powered, or idler, pulley can be often used for tensioning the belt, even though some designs offer tensioning mechanisms on the carriage. The kind of belt, tooth profile, and applied pressure drive all determine the power which can be transmitted.
Rack and pinion systems used in linear actuators contain a rack (generally known as the “linear equipment”), a pinion (or “circular gear”), and a gearbox. The gearbox helps to optimize the acceleration of the servo electric motor and the inertia match of the system. One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be directly or helical, although helical the teeth are often used due to their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For rack and pinion systems, the utmost force which can be transmitted can be largely determined by the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
Our unique understanding extends from the coupling of linear system components – gearbox, electric motor, pinion and rack – to outstanding system solutions. You can expect linear systems perfectly designed to meet your specific application needs with regards to the easy running, positioning accuracy and feed pressure of linear drives.
In the study of the linear movement of the gear drive system, the measuring system of the apparatus rack is designed in order to measure the linear error. using servo motor directly drives the gears on the rack. using servo engine directly drives the apparatus on the rack, and is dependant on the motion control PT point mode to realize the measurement of the Measuring range and standby control requirements etc. In the process of the linear motion of the gear and rack drive system, the measuring data is obtained by using the laser interferometer to gauge the position of the actual motion of the apparatus axis. Using the least square method to resolve the linear equations of contradiction, and to prolong it to any number of instances and arbitrary number of fitting functions, using MATLAB programming to obtain the actual data curve corresponds with design data curve, and the linear positioning precision and repeatability of gear and rack. This technology could be prolonged to linear measurement and data evaluation of nearly all linear motion mechanism. It can also be utilized as the foundation for the automated compensation algorithm of linear motion control.
