  • ATLANTA Rack & Pinion Drives Featured in Motion Systems Design Magazine Article
    The November 2011 issue of Motion Systems Design Magazine features ATLANTA Rack and Pinion Drives in an article titled "Separating Rack & Pinion Myths From Reality". Rack and pinion drives are an age-old mechanism widely used for converting rotary motion into linear motion. However, myths
  • Integrated Rack Simplifies Machine Design on Waterjet Machine
    A manufacturer of waterjet cutting machines needed a axis drive solution for a new traveling gantry machine. They wanted to reduce the amount of machining needed for a typical rack & pinion drive, while simplifying assembly and alignment of the racks to their linear guides.
  • Hybrid Linear Actuators: Technical Overview
    Converting the rotary motion of a stepping motor into linear motion can be accomplished by several mechanical means, including rack and pinion, belts and pulleys and other mechanical linkages. All of these designs require various mechanical components. The most effective way to accomplish
  • Motor Technology: Tubular Linear Motors
    to linear conversion mechanism. Eg. ball screw, rack and pinion, toothed belt. This is an extremely efficient motor design. The armature motor coils completely encircle the stator magnets to ensure optimum use of stored energy. All the standard motors operate without any forced cooling. The benefits
  • Creating Linear Motion One Step at a Time - Part 1 (.pdf)
    In classic mechanical engineering, linear systems are typically designed using conventional mechanical components to convert rotary into linear motion. Converting rotary to linear motion can be accomplished by several mechanical means using a rotary motor, rack and pinion, belt and pulley
  • A Brief Overview of Coordinate Transformation (.pdf)
    in which to define position, and often the units interpreted by the control system are different than what the user understands or wishes to specify. For instance, in the rack and pinion system shown below in Figure 1, the applied force is a torque from a motor. This torque causes a rotation of the pinion
  • A Better Belt Drive
    or rack-and-pinion drives.
  • Bettis Downloads
    including double-acting and spring-return scotch-yoke, rack and pinion, helical-spline and rotary vane.
