These rack & pinion drives are perfect for an array of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, and materials handling systems. Weighty load capacities and duty cycles can also be easily handled with these drives. Industries served include Material 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 may be accomplished
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, it is possible 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 are the portion of the gear that makes contact with another gear. To gear rack for railway axle ensure that two gears to mesh with each other the pitch must be the same for all mating pairs. The pitch of a gear may be the distance between equivalent points of adjacent teeth. When the teeth of gears mesh properly they prevent slipping and may exhibit efficiencies of up to 98%.
Our Integrated Racks install directly to most standard linear manuals, 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 gear being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, however, are the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius may be the distance from the center of the apparatus to the bottom of the teeth as the addendum radius (also called the “pitch” radius) may be the distance from the guts of the apparatus to the outside of the teeth.

In order to make sure that the apparatus rack you get is right for your application, seek out a reliable and skilled gear rack manufacturer who will take the time to listen to your application to be able to suggest the right product. Depending on the application and the requirements of this application, the teeth on the apparatus rack may need to become spaced a specific way in order to provide proper torque and effectiveness. This small change could make a world of difference in how your steering program or railway track features.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to another. Gears are described by two important items: radius and quantity of the teeth. They are typically mounted, or linked to other parts, via a shaft or base.
