With the intensive know-how of our skilled experts in both tool and machine engineering, our gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china clients benefit from a distinctive synergy effect that leads to an increased service life of both machine and tools, as well as an optimal formed part quality. We try to surpass your targets and make sure your success with our quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their own precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also required this because their essential clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack supplier who could accomplish the same limited rack tolerances and performance level that that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide range of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which got a complete 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 main of one’s teeth were hardened combined with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was used to achieve the required flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we can handle manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no additional manufacturers can produce. The part shown here is a helical gear rack that is used on a Maag gear manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ lengthy, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 4130 steel.

The customer needed an upgraded part which is essential to the operation of their machine and had previously been unable to find someone with the capability 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 quality of replacement parts made by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few projects are exclusive within the market and represent many of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide selection of rare gear shaping equipment in addition to advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to make a vast selection of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, styles, and patterns.

The rack was produced on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only very happy to find a producer with the capacity of producing the component; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their anticipations. We created this helical equipment rack with a lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information about this custom equipment rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program contains a rack (or a “linear equipment”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be directly or helical, although helical tooth are often used due to their higher load capability and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force that can be transmitted is largely dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
