These rack & pinion drives are ideal for a wide selection of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials handling systems. Heavy load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily dealt with with these drives. Industries served include Materials Handling, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Eliminates the need for a separate mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between the rack and rail is not necessary
Space-saving, performance optimized designs may be accomplished
Different quality racks designed for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail off of machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide variety of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, you’ll be able to achieve optimal designs for every application constraints. For suggestions about how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please seek advice from the factory.
Teeth: The teeth are the portion of the apparatus that makes connection with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh together the pitch must be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a equipment is the gear rack for railway axle distance between equivalent points of adjacent teeth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and will exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks install directly to most regular linear manuals, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving time and money. Key benefits include:
Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently depending on the particular portion of the gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, however, are the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius may be the distance from the center of the gear to the base of the teeth as the addendum radius (also known as the “pitch” radius) is the distance from the center of the apparatus to the outside of the teeth.
In order to make sure that the apparatus rack you purchase is right for the application, seek out a reliable and skilled gear rack manufacturer who will take the time to pay attention to your application in order to suggest the proper product. Depending on your application and the requirements of that application, one’s teeth on the apparatus rack may need to become spaced a certain way in order to provide correct torque and efficiency. This small change can make a world of difference in how your steering system or railway track functions.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via tooth and so are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to another. Gears are defined by two important items: radius and number of tooth. They are usually mounted, or linked to other parts, via a shaft or base.
