Meeting Precision Needs with Custom Gear Racks
For many years, machine tool builders have manufactured their own precision gear racks to achieve ultra-precise positioning on their machines. This was a necessity as their critical customers demanded accurate positioning without any error compensation on the axis. However, to cut costs without compromising on quality, these builders sought out a gear rack supplier capable of achieving the same stringent rack tolerances and performance levels.
As a solution, WLY provided an Ultra-High Precision DIN 4 (UHPR) gear rack, featuring a total pitch deviation of less than twelve microns (< 0.012 mm) over a one-meter length. To ensure rack strength, the root of the teeth along with the tooth flanks were hardened. Precision grinding was then used to meet the required flatness tolerances on the back and sides of the rack.
Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc. – A Testament to Our Capability
At Industrial Sprockets & Gears, Inc., we have the capability to manufacture complex gears and sprockets that other manufacturers simply cannot. We recently produced a helical gear rack for a Maag gear manufacturing machine that was 6′ long, with a nominal cross-section of 3” by 2”, constructed of 4130 steel.
Production of Replacement Parts
Our customer needed a replacement part, which was crucial to the operation of their machine. Previously, they had struggled to find a manufacturer capable of producing the required size of helical rack. However, many of our customers have found that our replacement parts exceed the quality of their original parts.
Our Unique Position in the Market
Many of our projects are one-of-a-kind in the market, representing some of the most challenging sizes and geometries of gears produced today. We maintain an array of rare gear shaping machines and advanced CNC milling and turning centers, which allows us to produce a wide variety of gear, sprocket, worm, and rack sizes, shapes, and patterns.
Quality Exceeding Expectations
The customer was not only thrilled to find a manufacturer capable of producing the component, but also remarked that the quality far exceeded their expectations. We were able to produce this helical gear rack with a lead time of just two weeks.
Exploring the Potential of Rack and Pinion Drive Systems
One common type of gear system is a rack and pinion drive, which consists of a rack (or a “linear gear”) and a pinion (or “circular gear”). The maximum force that can be transmitted by a rack and pinion drive system is largely determined by the tooth pitch and the size of the pinion.
Unbeatable Quality, Price, and Service
At WLY, we offer superior product quality, competitive pricing, and exceptional service. We invite you to explore our range of products and experience the difference for yourself. Don’t hesitate to contact us for your gear rack needs.
