For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their personal precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also needed this because their vital clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning with no mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wished to look for a gear rack supplier who could attain the same tight rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china Choosing from their wide selection of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which had a complete pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a 1 meter length. The real pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To attain the high rack strength the customer required, the root of the teeth were hardened along with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was utilized to achieve the necessary flatness tolerances on the trunk and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we are capable of manufacturing complex gears and sprockets that no other manufacturers can produce. The part shown here is a helical equipment rack that can be used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The gear rack is 6′ lengthy, includes a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is made from 4130 steel.

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

Many of our projects are exclusive within the sector and represent one of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain an array of rare gear shaping equipment as well as advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to produce a vast selection of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.

The rack was produced on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only pleased to find a producer with the capacity of producing the part; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their goals. We produced this helical equipment rack with a lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information regarding this custom gear rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system consists of a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be straight or helical, although helical the teeth are often used because of their higher load capability 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.
