A machine builder comes with an application to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To keep accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.
The curved rack would be a special design simply by the customer based on the machine requirements and the look envelope they have to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the look of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and concur that it would be able to handle the application form loading. The rack was created as a particular item and used ATLANTA’s vast encounter and knowledge in gear production.
A precision planetary reducer was chosen with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to operate a vehicle on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact design to reduce the amount of torque required at the reducer result. The reducer offered a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a huge reduction ratio to have the motor increase as high as feasible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is certainly a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular gear known as the pinion engages the teeth on a linear gear bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, thereby translating the rotational motion of the pinion in to the linear motion of the apparatus rack.
Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a few of the machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, materials handling systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.
We also offer custom gear rack production. We can manufacture gear racks in various materials such as for example plastic, brass, metal and aluminum. We can also manufacture spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, gear clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear share, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We can also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of gear types gear rack for Aerospace Industry complete or will cut gear teeth on customer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other unique gears for the following industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, commercial, energy, general market and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific study and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining solutions to customer specifications.
