A machine builder comes with an application to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To keep accurate positioning, there would be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electric preloading.
The curved rack will be a special design by the client based on the device requirements and the design envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the customer on the design of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and concur that it would be able to handle the application loading. The rack was produced as a particular item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast experience and knowledge in gear production.
A precision planetary reducer was chosen with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to drive on the rack. The flanged pinion offered a compact style to reduce the amount of torque necessary at the reducer output. The reducer offered a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to find the motor increase as high as feasible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is certainly a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular gear called the pinion engages teeth on a linear equipment bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the gear rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear motion of the gear rack.
Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a several machines using gear racks. Gear racks are also used in robotics, CNC routers, materials managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.
We also offer customized 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, equipment clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear stock, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We can also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of equipment types complete or can cut gear teeth on customer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other special gears for the next gear rack for Aerospace Industry china industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general sector and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining solutions to customer specifications.
