We try to surpass your targets and ensure your success with our quality.
For a long time, a machine tool builder had produced their very own precision gear racks to accomplish ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also needed this because their crucial clients 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 provider who could obtain the same tight rack tolerances and performance level that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china regular rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, which had a total 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 achieve the high rack strength the customer required, the main of the teeth were hardened along with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was used to achieve the required 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 other manufacturers can generate. The part shown this is a helical gear rack that is used on a Maag equipment manufacturing machine. The gear rack is 6′ long, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is made from 4130 steel.

The customer needed a replacement part which is essential to the operation of their machine and had previously been unable 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, clients have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the product quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few projects are unique within the market and represent probably 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, that allows us to make a vast array 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 client was not only pleased to find a producer with the capacity of producing the part; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their expectations. We produced this helical gear rack with a lead time of only fourteen days. For additional information regarding this custom gear rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive system contains a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be directly or helical, although helical teeth are often used due to their higher load capability and quieter operation. 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.
