Machine Tool Gear Racks are built for optimal precision.

Press Release Summary:

High-Precision Gear Racks are precision manufactured in controlled environment, achieving tooth quality of DIN 4 with total pitch error of less than 12 microns over 1 m length and parallelism tolerance of less than 15 microns. Pitch can eliminate need for electronic compensation, and parallelism accommodates drives with low backlash without need for preloading. Racks come in straight and helical versions - in 5, 6, 8 and 10 modules - with linear force capacities to 45,000 lb.

Original Press Release:

New Range of High Precision Gear Racks for Machine Tools Announced

ATLANTA Drive Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce a new range of High-Precision Gear Racks developed specifically for machine tool applications requiring the highest levels of precision and power.

This new rack range is precision manufactured in a controlled environment, achieving a tooth quality of DIN 4, with total pitch error of less than twelve microns over a meter length and a parallelism tolerance of less than fifteen microns.

The high precision pitch of the racks can eliminate the need for electronic compensation and the high precision parallelism allows for drives with extremely low backlash without the need for preloading.

These racks are available in straight and helical versions, in modules 5, 6, 8 and 10, with linear force capacities up to 45,000 lb. Comprehensive & accuracy inspection reports, as well as patented measuring and assembly aids, are available on request.
