A Gear Rack or Rack Gear contains spur gear tooth or helical gear the teeth cut on a linear rectangular or circular rod. Both round equipment racks and linear gear racks serves as a a sector gear with an infinitely large radius of curvature.

The most obvious usage of a spur gear rack is to convert the rotary motion of a pinion gear into linear motion or vise versa. When assembled, they are referred to as a rack and pinion. Rack gears provide an benefit over ball screws because they have got a big load carrying ability and a straightforward design that allows linking multiple racks to meet up your required length.
We carry both rectangular and circular cross-section gear rack designs in a
range of precision pitches. All our inch and metric gear racks possess machined ends for applications requiring the usage of multiple equipment racks in a series.
Whenever your machine’s precision movement drive exceeds what can simply and economically be performed via ball screws, rack and pinion is the logical choice. Best of all, our gear rack includes indexing holes and installation holes pre-bored. That will save you lots of time, hassle and expenditure.

If your travel duration is more than can be obtained from a single length of rack, no issue. Precision machined ends allow you to butt extra pieces and continue going.
A rack is also called gear rack or simply railing. They are rectangular shaped rods that are provided on one aspect with toothing just like a gear. By utilizing a gear that engages in the toothing of the rack, you’ll be able to move the gear or the rack longitudinally. Tooth racks are utilized, among other things, in machines in which a rotational motion must be converted to a straightforward movement or vice versa.

If power transmitting is completed by gear coupling, module transmission can be used. Usually the module identifies the type of the gear in fact it is the ratio between pitch and p. Module Stainless Steel Gear Rack adjustments according to the pitch. Here following conversion table.
The existing industry standard, these 20° pressure angle gears have thicker, stronger teeth than 14½° pressure angle gears. Compared to plastic-type gears and racks, they’re better for high-load, high-speed, and durable applications. Also referred to as spur gears.
