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 do this. To keep up accurate positioning, there would be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.
The curved rack will be a special design by the customer based on the device requirements and the look envelope they have to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the client on the design of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and confirm that it would become able to handle the application form loading. The rack was created as a special item and utilized 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 offered a compact style to reduce the amount of torque necessary at the reducer result. The reducer provided a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a sizable reduction ratio to have the motor speed up as high as feasible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is usually a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular equipment known as the pinion engages teeth on a linear equipment bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear motion of the apparatus rack.
Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines certainly are a few of the machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, material managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace market.
We also offer customized gear rack production. We can manufacture gear racks in a variety of materials such as for example plastic, brass, metal 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 shafts, ratchets and pawls. We can also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of gear types complete or can cut gear teeth on consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other unique gears for the following industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general market and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical gear rack for Aerospace Industry instrument, saw, scientific study and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining methods to customer specifications.
