gear rack for Aerospace Industry

A machine builder comes with an app to rotate tooling around an Aerospace component and would like to use a curved rack and pinion drive to do this. To maintain accurate positioning, there would be two axis drives to rotate the axis and remove backlash using electric preloading.

The curved rack will be a special design simply by the client based on the machine requirements and the design envelope they have to work with.
ATLANTA could work with the customer on the design of the curved rack to improve it’s manufacturability and concur that it would become able to handle the application loading. The rack was created as a special item and utilized ATLANTA’s vast encounter and knowledge in gear production.

A precision planetary reducer was selected with a ISO gear rack for Aerospace Industry flanged pinion mounted to the output to operate a vehicle on the rack. The flanged pinion provided a compact style to reduce the amount of torque necessary at the reducer output. The reducer supplied a rigid support of the flanged pinion and allowed for a large reduction ratio to obtain the motor speed up as high as possible.
What is a equipment rack? A rack and pinion is a pair of gears which convert rotational motion into linear motion. A circular equipment 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 motion of the pinion into the linear movement 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 used in robotics, CNC routers, materials handling systems, automation systems, and the aerospace industry.

We also offer custom gear rack production. We can manufacture equipment racks in various materials such as plastic, brass, metal and aluminum. We can also produce 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 can also produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or hubless.
We manufacture a wide variety of equipment types complete or will cut gear teeth on customer supplied blanks. We make rack and pinion gears, face gears, ring gears and other particular gears for the next industries: aviation, protection and aerospace instrumentation, industrial, energy, general sector and equipment, healthcare, leisure, musical instrument, saw, scientific analysis and transportation. Ever-Power manufactures gears using modern machining solutions to customer specifications.
