For years, a machine tool builder had produced their very own precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on their machines. They also needed this because their important clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning with no error compensation on the axis.
To save costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack provider who could attain the same limited rack tolerances and performance level that that they had come accustom to.
Choosing from their wide variety of standard rack & pinion drives, ATLANTA offered a Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) equipment rack, which experienced a total pitch deviation of significantly less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a 1 meter length. The real 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 together with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was used to achieve the needed flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we can handle manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no various other manufacturers can produce. The part shown this is a helical gear rack that can be used on a Maag gear 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 an upgraded part which is necessary to the procedure of their machine and had previously been struggling to find someone with the capability to slice the required size of helical rack. Many times customers e mail us because OEM parts are no more available or are price prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the grade of replacement parts made by us exceed the quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few projects are unique within the market and represent many of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain a wide selection of rare gear shaping devices along with advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to make a vast array of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.

The rack was manufactured on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only pleased to find a manufacturer capable of producing the component; they remarked that the product quality far exceeded their expectations. We created this helical equipment rack with a business lead time of only two weeks. For additional information about this custom gear rack machining project, contact us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program contains a rack (or a “linear equipment”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). One’s teeth of a rack and pinion drive can be straight or helical, although helical tooth are often used due to their higher load capacity and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive system, the maximum force that can be transmitted is largely dependant on the tooth pitch and how big is the pinion.
