This integrated and coordinated development of thermoforming machines and tools is our most significant customer benefit and unique on the thermoforming market. With the considerable know-how of our skilled experts in both tool and machine engineering, our customers benefit from a unique synergy effect that leads to a higher service existence of both machine and tools, in addition to an optimal formed part quality. We try to surpass your targets and make sure your success with this quality.
For years, a machine tool builder had gear rack for Machine Tool Industry china manufactured their very own precision gear racks to attain ultra-precise positioning on the machines. They also needed this because their vital clients demanded that their devices maintain accurate positioning without any mistake compensation on the axis.
To save lots of costs, they wanted to look for a gear rack provider who could accomplish the same limited rack tolerances and performance level 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) gear rack, which acquired a total pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a 1 meter length. The actual pitch deviation was measured at 20º C and marked on each rack. To achieve the high rack power the customer required, the main of the teeth were hardened together with the tooth flanks. Finally, precision grinding was used to achieve the necessary flatness tolerances on the trunk and sides of the rack.
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we are capable of manufacturing complicated gears and sprockets that no other manufacturers can produce. The part shown here is a helical gear rack that can be used on a Maag gear manufacturing machine. The apparatus rack is 6′ lengthy, has a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, and is made from 4130 steel.

The customer needed a replacement part which is necessary to the operation of their machine and had previously been unable to find someone with the capacity to slice the required size of helical rack. Many times customers contact us because OEM parts are no longer available or are cost prohibitive. Often, customers have found that the quality of replacement parts made by us exceed the quality their OEM parts.

Quite a few projects are exclusive within the sector and represent many of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain an array of rare gear shaping equipment as well as advanced CNC milling and turning centers, that allows us to produce a vast array of gear, sprocket, function, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.

The rack was produced on a specialized CNC gear rack milling machine to tolerances as tight as ±0.001″. The customer was not only very happy to find a producer with the capacity of producing the component; they remarked that the quality far exceeded their anticipations. We produced this helical equipment rack with a lead time of only two weeks. For additional details about this custom equipment rack machining project, e mail us directly.
A rack and pinion drive program contains a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The teeth of a rack and pinion drive could be straight or helical, although helical tooth are often used because of their higher load capacity and quieter procedure. For a rack and pinion drive program, the maximum force which can be transmitted is largely dependant on the tooth pitch and the size of the pinion.
