With the considerable know-how of our experienced experts in both tool and machine engineering, our clients benefit from a distinctive synergy effect leading to an increased service life of both machine and tools, along with an optimal formed part quality. We aim to surpass your objectives and make sure your gear rack for Machine Tool Industry success with our quality.
For years, a machine tool builder had manufactured their very own precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also required this because their crucial clients demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning without any error compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to find a gear rack supplier who could attain the same limited rack tolerances and performance level that that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Accuracy DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which acquired a total pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a a single meter length. The real pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To achieve the high rack power the customer required, the root of the teeth were hardened combined 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 various other manufacturers can generate. The part shown this is a helical gear rack that can be used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The gear rack is 6′ lengthy, includes a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is constructed of 4130 steel.

The customer needed an upgraded part which is necessary to the procedure of their machine and had previously been struggling to find someone with the capability to slice the required size of helical rack. Often customers contact us because OEM parts are no more available or are price prohibitive. Often, clients 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 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, that allows us to make a vast selection of gear, sprocket, work, and rack sizes, styles, 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 very happy to find a producer capable of producing the component; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their anticipations. We produced this helical gear rack with a business lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information about this custom gear rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program includes a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be straight or helical, although helical tooth 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 basically dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
