gear rack for Machine Tool Industry

This integrated and coordinated development of thermoforming machines and tools is our most significant customer benefit and unique on the thermoforming market. With the extensive know-how of our skilled experts in both device and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a distinctive synergy effect leading to a gear rack for Machine Tool Industry higher service lifestyle of both machine and tools, and also an optimal formed part quality. We try to surpass your objectives and make sure your success with our quality.
For years, a machine tool builder had manufactured their personal precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also needed this because their important customers demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning without any error compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to find a gear rack provider who could achieve the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide selection of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which acquired a total pitch deviation of 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 power the customer required, the root of one’s teeth were hardened along with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized 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 other manufacturers can generate. The part shown here is a helical equipment rack that can be 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 necessary to the procedure of their machine and had previously been unable to find someone with the capacity to cut the required size of helical rack. Many times customers e mail us because OEM parts are no longer available or are price prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few projects are unique 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 as well as advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to make a vast array of gear, sprocket, work, and rack sizes, shapes, 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 manufacturer capable of producing the component; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their objectives. We produced this helical equipment rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. For additional details about this custom equipment rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system consists of a rack (or a “linear equipment”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be directly or helical, although helical tooth are often used because of their higher load capability and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force that can be transmitted is largely dependant on the tooth pitch and the size of the pinion.
