These rack & pinion gear rack for railway axle drives are perfect for an array of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials handling systems. Weighty load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Materials Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Eliminates the need for a separate mounting surface area 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 selection of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, you’ll be able to achieve optimal styles for every 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 connection with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh jointly the pitch must be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a equipment may be the distance between comparative points of adjacent teeth. When the teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and may exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks attach directly to most standard linear guides, eliminating the necessity for additional machining and alignment, saving time and money. Key benefits include:
Radius: The gear radius is defined differently based on the particular section of the apparatus being discussed. Both most relevant measurements, however, are the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius is the distance from the center of the apparatus to the bottom of the teeth while the addendum radius (also called the “pitch” radius) is the distance from the guts of the gear to the exterior of the teeth.
In order to ensure that the gear rack you purchase is right for your application, seek out a reliable and skilled gear rack manufacturer who’ll take 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 apparatus rack might need to become spaced a specific way to be able to provide appropriate torque and efficiency. This small change can make a world of difference in how your steering program or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and so are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to some other. Gears are defined by two important items: radius and amount of tooth. They are usually mounted, or linked to other parts, with a shaft or base.
