A Gear Rack or Rack Equipment consists of spur gear teeth or helical gear teeth cut on a linear rectangular or round rod. Both round equipment racks and linear equipment racks can be described as a sector gear with an infinitely large radius of curvature.

The most obvious usage of a spur gear rack is to convert the rotary movement of a pinion gear into linear motion or vise versa. When assembled, they are referred to as a rack and pinion. Rack gears offer an benefit over ball screws because they possess a huge load carrying capability and a straightforward design which allows linking multiple racks to meet up your required length.
We bring both rectangular and circular cross-section gear rack styles in a
selection of precision pitches. All our ” and metric gear racks possess machined ends for applications needing the usage of multiple equipment racks in a string.
Whenever your machine’s precision motion drive exceeds what can certainly and economically be achieved via ball screws, rack and pinion is the logical choice. On top of that, our gear rack includes indexing holes and mounting holes pre-bored. That will save you plenty of time, hassle and expense.

If your travel length is more than can be acquired from a single amount of rack, no issue. Precision machined ends allow you to butt extra pieces and continue going.
A rack can be called equipment rack or simply railing. They are rectangular formed rods that are provided on one part with toothing as being a gear. By utilizing a gear that engages in the toothing of the rack, it is possible to move the apparatus or the rack longitudinally. Tooth racks are used, among other things, in machines where a rotational motion must be converted to a straightforward movement or vice versa.

If power transmission is completed by equipment coupling, module transmission can be used. Generally the module identifies the type of the gear and it is the ratio between pitch and p. Module adjustments based on the pitch. Here following conversion table.
The Stainless Steel Gear Rack china current industry standard, these 20° pressure angle gears have thicker, stronger teeth than 14½° pressure angle gears. In comparison to plastic-type material gears and racks, they’re better for high-load, high-speed, and heavy duty applications. Also called spur gears.
