FAQs

Simply select a linear edge or line on the rack component, and then a cylindrical face or circular edge on the pinion component to set up the mate. After then, the mate will link the motion to the pinion pitch diameter or the rack travel distance.

Simply select a linear edge or line on the rack component, followed by a cylindrical face or circular edge on the pinion component to complete the mate. The motion will then be correlated using either the pinion pitch diameter or the rack travel distance.

The benefits of using a mechanical mate include:

  • The ability to create multiple points of contact with the work piece for greater accuracy and stability
  • The ability to work with more complex shapes and angles than what could be achieved by hand alone
  • The ability to make repetitive motions without fatigue

The different types of mechanical mates are used in the assembly of metal components. There are four types of mechanical mates:

  • A mechanical joint is a type of mechanical mate that uses a threaded connection. Threaded connections allow for a tight fit, which prevents looseness or looseness during use.
  • A swivel joint is a type of mechanical mate that rotates about its axis and allows for movement in one direction only. The swivel joint is most commonly found on heavy machinery such as cranes, bulldozers, and excavators.
