These rack & pinion drives are ideal for a wide gear rack for railway axle selection of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and material handling systems. Heavy load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.

Eliminates the need for another mounting surface for the rail
Additional alignment between your rack and rail is not necessary
Space-saving, performance optimized designs may be accomplished
Different quality racks available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail from machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide variety of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, it is possible to achieve optimal styles for every application constraints. For suggestions about how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please consult the factory.

Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the apparatus that makes contact with another gear. In order for two gears to mesh collectively the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a equipment is the distance between equivalent points of adjacent the teeth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh properly they prevent slipping and may exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks mount directly to most regular linear guides, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving time and money. Key benefits include:

Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently based on the particular section of the gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, nevertheless, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius may be the distance from the guts of the gear to the base of the teeth while the addendum radius (also called the “pitch” radius) may be the distance from the center of the apparatus to the exterior of the teeth.

In order to ensure that the gear rack you purchase is right for the application, seek out a reliable and experienced gear rack manufacturer who will take time to listen to your application to be able to suggest the right product. Depending on your application and the requirements of this application, one’s teeth on the apparatus rack might need to be spaced a specific way to be able to provide correct torque and performance. This small change could make an environment of difference in how your steering program or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and so are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to some other. Gears are described by two important items: radius and amount of the teeth. They are typically mounted, or linked to other parts, with a shaft or base.
