These rack & pinion drives are ideal for a wide variety of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and material handling systems. Weighty load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily taken care of 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 your rack and rail is not necessary
Space-saving, performance optimized designs can be achieved
Different quality racks designed for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail from 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 almost any application constraints. For recommendations about how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please seek advice from the factory.
Teeth: The teeth are the portion of the gear that makes contact with another gear. In order for two gears to mesh collectively the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear may be the gear rack for railway axle distance between comparative points of adjacent teeth. When the teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and will exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks attach directly to most regular linear guides, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:
Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently depending on the particular portion of the apparatus being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, however, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The root radius may be the distance from the center of the apparatus to the bottom of the teeth while the addendum radius (also known as the “pitch” radius) is the distance from the center of the gear to the outside of the teeth.
In order to ensure that the gear rack you purchase is right for your application, seek out a trusted and experienced gear rack manufacturer who’ll take the time to listen to your application in order to suggest the right product. Depending on the application and the requirements of this application, one’s teeth on the gear rack might need to become spaced a specific way in order to provide appropriate torque and effectiveness. 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 the teeth and so are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to some other. Gears are described by two essential items: radius and number of tooth. They are usually mounted, or linked to other parts, with a shaft or base.
