With the considerable know-how of our experienced experts in both device and machine engineering, our customers benefit from a unique synergy effect that leads to a higher service lifestyle of both machine and equipment, as well as an optimal formed component quality. We try to surpass your expectations and make sure your gear rack for Machine Tool Industry 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 crucial customers demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wished to look for a gear rack provider who could achieve the same limited rack tolerances and performance level that that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide selection of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which got a total pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a a single meter length. The real pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To achieve the high rack strength the customer required, the main of one’s teeth were hardened combined with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized to achieve the needed flatness tolerances on the trunk and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we can handle manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no additional manufacturers can generate. The part shown here is a helical gear rack that can be used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The gear rack is 6′ lengthy, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is made from 4130 steel.

The customer needed a replacement part which is necessary to the procedure of their machine and had previously been unable to find someone with the capability to cut the required size of helical rack. Often customers e mail us because OEM parts are no longer available or are cost prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.

Many of our projects are exclusive within the market and represent probably the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide selection of rare gear shaping apparatus and also advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to produce a vast array of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, forms, and patterns.

The rack was manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The client was not only very happy to find a manufacturer capable of producing the part; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their targets. We produced this helical gear rack with a business lead time of only two weeks. For additional details 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”). One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be directly or helical, although helical the teeth are often used because of their higher load capacity and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force that can be transmitted is basically dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
