For a long time, a machine tool gear rack for Machine Tool Industry builder had produced their personal precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also required this because their essential clients demanded that their machines maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wished to look for a gear rack provider who could obtain the same tight rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which got a complete pitch deviation of significantly less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a 1 meter length. The actual pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To attain the high rack strength 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 trunk and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we are capable of manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no various other manufacturers can produce. The part shown this is a helical gear rack that is used on a Maag gear 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 essential to the procedure of their machine and had previously been struggling to find someone with the capability to cut the required size of helical rack. Many times customers contact us because OEM parts are no longer available or are price prohibitive. Often, clients have found that the grade of replacement parts produced by us exceed the quality their OEM parts.

Many of our projects are exclusive within the industry and represent probably the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide range of rare gear shaping tools as well as advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to produce a vast selection of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, styles, 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 pleased to find a producer with the capacity of producing the component; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their goals. We created this helical equipment rack with a lead time of only two weeks. For additional information regarding this custom gear rack machining project, e mail us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program consists of 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 due to their higher load capacity and quieter operation. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force which can be transmitted is basically determined by the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
