With the extensive know-how of our skilled experts in both device and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a distinctive synergy effect that leads to an increased service lifestyle of both machine and tools, and also an optimal formed component quality. We aim to surpass your anticipations and make sure your success with our quality.
For years, a machine tool builder had produced their own precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also needed this because their vital customers demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning with no mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack supplier who could achieve the same restricted rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which had a complete pitch deviation of significantly less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a one meter length. The actual pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To attain the high rack power the customer required, the main of the teeth were hardened together with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was used to achieve the needed flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we can handle manufacturing complex gears and sprockets that no other manufacturers can generate. The part shown here is a helical gear rack that can be used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ lengthy, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 4130 steel.

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

Quite a few projects are exclusive within the industry and represent many of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide selection of rare gear shaping gear in addition to advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to produce a vast array of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.

The rack was manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The client was not only very happy to find a producer with the capacity of producing the part; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their targets. We created this helical equipment rack with a lead time of only fourteen days. For additional details about this custom equipment rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program contains a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be straight or helical, although helical tooth are often used due to their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force that can be transmitted is basically determined by the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
