These rack & pinion drives are ideal for an array of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and Gear Rack For Rack Actuator materials handling systems. Large load capacities and duty cycles can also be easily taken care of with these drives. Industries served include Materials Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.

Eliminates the necessity for a separate mounting surface area for the rail
Additional alignment between the rack and rail is not necessary
Space-conserving, performance optimized designs can be achieved
Different quality racks designed for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail from machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide range of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, you’ll be able to achieve optimal designs for every application constraints. For suggestions on how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your style, please consult the factory.

Teeth: The teeth are the portion of the apparatus that makes contact with another gear. To ensure that two gears to mesh together the pitch must be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear may be the distance between equivalent points of adjacent the teeth. When the teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and will exhibit efficiencies as high as 98%.
Our Integrated Racks install directly to most standard linear guides, eliminating the necessity for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:

Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently based on the particular section of the apparatus being discussed. Both most relevant measurements, however, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The root radius may be the distance from the guts of the apparatus to the bottom of the teeth while the addendum radius (also known as the “pitch” radius) is the distance from the guts of the gear to the exterior of the teeth.

In order to ensure that the gear rack you get is right for your application, seek out a reliable and experienced gear rack manufacturer who’ll take the time to pay attention to your application to be able to suggest the proper product. Depending on the application and the requirements of this application, the teeth on the apparatus rack may need to become spaced a certain way in order to provide appropriate torque and efficiency. This small change can make a world of difference in how your steering system or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via tooth and are used to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to some other. Gears are defined by two essential items: radius and quantity of teeth. They are usually mounted, or connected to other parts, via a shaft or base.
