A machine builder required a vertical axis drive to draw, stack and transfer sections of pipe in an essential oil field environment. The application load was very heavy and needed to be transported vertically over a long distance.

The customer also asked to minimize the weight of the structure while keeping a high level of safety.
Due to the high loading, ATLANTA offered a multi-drive alternative, which shared the strain over four pinions operating on two lengths of rack. This allowed a smaller rack and pinion to be used, reducing the weight of the axis drives.

Since accuracy had not been important for the application form, an induction-hardened rack was used. This rack had induction-hardened teeth to provide high thrust capacity. To insure that the racks remained stationary under the high loading, two meter lengthy racks were used to maximize the amount of mounting screws used per section and dowel pins had been used to pin the racks in place.

The Ever-Power solution met all of the requirements from the client and could handle the high loading from the pipes being transported.
A milling cutter for a wooden operating machine has pairs of foundation plates, each plate having a recess to received a slicing place. Each pair of foundation plates is installed on a guide plate, and numerous such instruction plates are installed on a common tubular shaft. Each foundation plate includes a toothed rack. The toothed racks of every pair of foundation plates engage a common pinion set up on the tubular shaft. The radial distance of each basis plate is modified by a screw and the racks and pinion be sure that the radial adjustment could be exactly the same for each person in the same pair of base plates.

Linear motion is indispensable to moving machines; it transports equipment and products efficiently and controllably. The mechanisms that generate linear movement are generally ranked by their axial velocity and acceleration, axial forces versus structural volume, existence, rigidity, and positioning precision.
Two common linear systems are linear motors and ballscrew drives. Rack-and-pinion drives tend to be overlooked as past-era technology with limited positioning accuracy. However, this assumption is invalid.

Precision-ground mounting surfaces to gear rack for Material Handling Industry restricted tolerances, wear-resistant surface treatments, individually deburred gear teeth, and compact, low-mass designs are boosting performance. Actually, rack-and-pinion drives evaluate favorably to linear motors as well as roller or ground-thread ballscrews.
New-generation rack-and-pinion systems provide high dynamic functionality and unlimited travel range. Some include premium servogears and actuators with backlash less than 1 arc-min., effectiveness to 98.5%, and far more compact sizes than standard servomotor-gear combinations. Some preassembled gear-pinion units can even run true to 10 µm, for protection and smooth motion.
