ATLANTA Drive Systems Offers Automatic Lubrication Systems for Rack & Pinion Drives

With open gearing such as rack & pinions, lubrication is extremely critical. A thin film of grease should always be present on the contacting tooth flanks to ensure that there is no metal-to-metal contact, which can quickly damage the teeth. Manual lubrication (applied by hand) can be unreliable and inconsistent and reduce the lifetime of the gearing. ATLANTA Drive Systems offers a complete range...
