ATLANTA Drive Systems Inc. announces a
new range of Torque Supporter Precision Rack & Pinion Drive Systems that
can handle highly dynamic and heavy loads. These systems utilize precision
planetary reducers with an integral output housing and outboard bearing to
provide a rigid support to the output pinion.
reducers with output flanges are limited in the forces they can transmit by the
tilting moment that the output bearings can handle. By adding an output bearing
housing, this limitation is removed. The design of the pinion allows for
smaller pitch diameters, which reduces the reducer torque. Because of these
design enhancements, a smaller reducer can typically be used.
can be used for a wide range of applications, including axis drives requiring
precise positioning and repeatability, traveling gantries and columns, pick-and-place
robots, CNC routers, and material handling systems. Heavy loads and duty cycles
can be easily handled with this drives.
