For years, a machine tool builder had produced their personal precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also needed this because their critical clients demanded that their machines gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack provider who could accomplish the same limited rack tolerances and performance level 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 significantly less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a one meter length. The actual pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To attain the high rack strength the customer required, the main of the teeth were hardened together with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized to achieve the required flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we are capable of manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no various other manufacturers can generate. The part shown this is a helical equipment rack that is utilized on a Maag gear manufacturing machine. The gear rack is 6′ long, includes 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 struggling to find someone with the capacity to cut the required size of helical rack. Often customers contact us because OEM parts are no more available or are price prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the grade of replacement parts produced by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.

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

The rack was manufactured 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 part; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their anticipations. We created this helical equipment rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. 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”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be straight or helical, although helical the teeth are often used due to their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force which can be transmitted is basically determined by the tooth pitch and the size of the pinion.
