This integrated and coordinated advancement of thermoforming machines and tools is our most important customer benefit and unique on the thermoforming market. With the considerable know-how of our experienced experts in both tool and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a distinctive synergy effect gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china leading to an increased service lifestyle of both machine and equipment, along with an optimal formed component quality. We aim to surpass your objectives and ensure your success with this quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their very own precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also needed this because their critical clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to find a gear rack provider who could obtain the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide selection of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which got a complete pitch deviation of significantly less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a a single meter length. The actual pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To achieve the high rack power the customer required, the main of the teeth were hardened combined 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 gear rack that is used on a Maag gear manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ long, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 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 cut the required size of helical rack. Often customers contact 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 product quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few 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 products and also advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to produce a vast selection of gear, sprocket, work, 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 component; 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 about 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 directly or helical, although helical the teeth are often used because of their higher load capability and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force that can be transmitted is basically dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
