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 material handling systems. Weighty load capacities and duty cycles may also be easily managed with these drives. Industries served include Material Managing, Automation, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.

Eliminates the necessity for a separate 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 available for best price-performance ratio
Allows assembly of rack and rail off of machine frame
This rack range further expands the already wide selection 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 style, please consult the factory.

Teeth: The teeth will be the portion of the apparatus that makes contact 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 may be the distance between equivalent points of adjacent tooth. When one’s teeth of gears mesh properly they prevent slipping and can exhibit efficiencies of up to 98%.
Our Integrated Racks attach directly to most standard linear guides, eliminating the need for additional machining and alignment, saving money and time. Key benefits include:

Radius: The apparatus radius is defined differently depending on the particular section of the apparatus being discussed. The two most relevant measurements, nevertheless, will be the root radius and the addendum radius. The main radius may be 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 center of the apparatus to the gear rack for railway axle outside of the teeth.

In order to make sure that the apparatus rack you purchase is right for your application, seek out a trusted and skilled gear rack manufacturer who will take time to listen to your application to be able to suggest the right product. Depending on the application and the requirements of this application, one’s teeth on the gear rack might need to be spaced a certain way in order to provide appropriate torque and effectiveness. This small change can make an environment of difference in how your steering system or railway track functions.
Gears are mechanisms that mesh together via teeth and are used to transmit rotary movement from one shaft to some other. Gears are defined by two important items: radius and number of teeth. They are usually mounted, or linked to other parts, via a shaft or base.
