These rack & pinion drives are perfect for a wide range of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials handling systems. Large load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Materials Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.

Eliminates the need for another mounting surface area for the rail
Additional alignment between your rack and rail is not necessary
Space-saving, performance optimized designs can be achieved
Different quality racks available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail from machine frame
This rack range Gear Rack For Rack Actuator further expands the already wide selection of ATLANTA rack & pinion drives. With this range, you’ll be able to achieve optimal designs for almost any application constraints. For suggestions about how to integrate the Integrated Rack into your design, please consult the factory.

Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the gear that makes connection with another gear. In order for two gears to mesh together the pitch should be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear is the distance between comparative points of adjacent tooth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh correctly they prevent slipping and will exhibit efficiencies of up to 98%.
Our Integrated Racks attach 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 portion of the apparatus being discussed. Both most relevant measurements, however, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius is the distance from the center of the apparatus to the base 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 make sure that the apparatus rack you get is right for the application, seek out a reliable and skilled gear rack manufacturer who will take time to listen to your application in order to suggest the right product. Depending on the application and the requirements of that application, the teeth on the apparatus rack may need to become spaced a certain way in order to provide correct torque and performance. This small change can make a world of difference in how your steering program or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via tooth and so are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to some other. Gears are defined by two important items: radius and amount of the teeth. They are typically mounted, or connected to other parts, with a shaft or base.
