With the intensive know-how of our skilled experts in both device and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a unique synergy effect that leads to an increased service lifestyle of both machine and tools, as well as an optimal formed component quality. We try to surpass your objectives and make sure your success with this quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their own precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also required this because their vital clients demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning with no error compensation on the axis.
To save costs, they wished to look for a gear rack supplier who could achieve the same tight rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide range of standard 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 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 needed flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we are capable of manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no additional manufacturers can create. The part shown here is a helical equipment rack that is utilized on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The apparatus 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 necessary 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. Many times customers e mail us because OEM parts are no more available or are price prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the quality of replacement parts made by us exceed the quality their OEM parts.

Many of our projects are unique within the market and represent some of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide range of rare gear shaping devices 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 manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only very happy to find a producer with the capacity of producing the component; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their objectives. We created this helical equipment rack with a lead time of only fourteen days. For additional details about this custom equipment rack machining project, e mail 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 the teeth are often used because of their higher load capacity and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force which can be transmitted is largely dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
