gear rack for Aerospace Industry

A machine builder comes with an application to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and wish to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To maintain accurate positioning, there would be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electric preloading.

The curved rack would be a special gear rack for Aerospace Industry china design by the client based on the machine requirements and the design envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA was able to work with the customer on the look of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and concur that it would be able to handle the application form loading. The rack was created as a particular item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast encounter and knowledge in equipment production.

A precision planetary reducer was chosen with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to drive on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the amount of torque necessary at the reducer output. The reducer supplied a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to find the motor speed up as high as possible.
What is a gear rack? A rack and pinion is definitely a couple of gears which convert rotational movement into linear motion. A circular equipment known as the pinion engages tooth on a linear equipment bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, therefore translating the rotational movement of the pinion into the linear motion of the apparatus rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines certainly are a several machines using gear racks. Gear racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, materials handling systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.

We also offer customized gear rack manufacturing. We can manufacture gear racks in a variety of materials such as for example plastic, brass, steel and aluminum. We can also produce spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, gear clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear stock, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We are able to also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of equipment types complete or will cut gear teeth on client supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other particular gears for the next industries: aviation, defense and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general industry and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using modern machining methods to customer specifications.
