A machine builder comes with an app to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to achieve this. To keep gear rack for Aerospace Industry china accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.
The curved rack would be a special design by the customer based on the device requirements and the look envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA was able to work with the customer on the design of the curved rack to boost it’s manufacturability and confirm that it would be able to handle the application loading. The rack was created as a special item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast experience 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 offered a compact style to reduce the quantity of torque necessary at the reducer output. The reducer offered a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a big reduction ratio to get the motor speed up as high as feasible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is a couple of gears which convert rotational motion into linear movement. A circular equipment known as the pinion engages tooth on a linear equipment bar called the gear rack. Rotational motion put on the pinion causes the apparatus rack to move, thereby translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear movement of the apparatus rack.
Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines are a several machines using gear racks. Equipment racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, materials managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace sector.
We also offer custom gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in various materials such as for example plastic, brass, metal and aluminum. We can also produce spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, gear clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear share, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We are able to also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of gear types complete or will cut gear teeth on consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other special gears for the next industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general market and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific research and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using contemporary machining methods to customer specifications.
