  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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
  • Advanced Roller Pinion Technology Provides Increased Accuracy for Motion Control Applications
    Rack and pinion technology is commonly used in linear motion systems to convert rotary motion into linear motion. Providing versatile operation, rack and pinion systems can be employed in a variety of motion control applications, ranging from cutting systems to medical and robotics applications.
  • 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
  • Linear actuators achieve precision motion control with little to no backlash
    Roller-pinion systems are a better option than rack and pinions where accuracy and a minimum of friction are important.
  • Linear drive systems enabling precision parts production
    Differences abound between traditional rack and pinion twin drives, split-pinion-based designs, and roller-pinion systems.
  • A Brief Overview of Coordinate Transformation (.pdf)
    , which is translated into a 1 dimensional, linear movement of the payload along the rack.
  • A Better Belt Drive
    If you think belt drives have too much slop for your precision linear motion applications, think again. Bell-Everman Inc., a specialist in high-accuracy motion systems, has come up with a new kind of belt drive for applications that usually call for pricier linear motors, top-quality ball screws
