gear rack for Aerospace Industry

A machine builder has an application to rotate tooling around an Aerospace element and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To keep accurate positioning, there will be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electrical preloading.

The curved rack will be a special design simply by the customer based on the device requirements and the look envelope they need to work with.
ATLANTA was able to work with the customer on the look of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and concur that it would become able to handle the application form loading. The rack was produced as a particular item and used ATLANTA’s vast encounter and knowledge in equipment production.

A precision planetary reducer was chosen with a ISO flanged pinion mounted to the output to operate a vehicle on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the quantity of torque necessary at the reducer output. The reducer supplied a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a huge reduction ratio to have the motor increase as high as feasible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is usually a set of gears which convert rotational motion into linear motion. A circular gear known as the pinion engages teeth on a linear gear bar called the apparatus rack. Rotational motion applied to the pinion causes the gear rack to move, therefore translating the rotational movement of the pinion in to the linear motion of the apparatus rack.

Automotive steering, milling machines, grinders, and meat processing machines certainly are a few of the machines using gear racks. Gear racks are also found in robotics, CNC routers, materials managing systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.

We also offer custom gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in a variety of materials such as plastic, brass, metal and aluminum. We are able to also manufacture spur gears, bevel gears, helical gears, gear clusters, metric gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, gear blanks, gear share, pinion shafts, ratchets and pawls. We are able to also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a multitude of equipment types complete or can cut gear teeth on consumer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, band gears and other unique gears for the following industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, commercial, energy, general gear rack for Aerospace Industry china market and equipment, health care, leisure, musical instrument, power tool, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using modern machining solutions to customer specifications.
