A machine builder has an software to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To keep up accurate positioning, there will 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 look envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the look of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and confirm that it would end up being able to handle the application form loading. The rack was produced 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 drive on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the amount of torque required at the reducer output. The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a big reduction ratio to obtain the motor increase as high as possible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion can be a set of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular gear known as the pinion engages the teeth on a linear equipment bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, therefore translating the rotational motion of the pinion in to the linear movement of the apparatus rack.
Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a several machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, material managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace sector.
We also offer custom gear rack manufacturing. We can manufacture gear racks in various materials such as plastic, brass, steel and aluminum. We can also produce spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, equipment clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear share, pinion gear rack for Aerospace Industry china shafts, ratchets and pawls. We can also manufacture gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of gear types complete or can cut gear teeth on client supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other special gears for the next industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general industry and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific research and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using modern machining solutions to customer specifications.
