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

The most obvious use of a spur gear rack is to convert the rotary motion of a pinion gear into linear movement 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 sizable load carrying capacity and a simple design that allows linking multiple racks to meet your required length.
We carry both rectangular and round cross-section gear rack styles in a
selection of precision pitches. All our ” and metric gear racks have machined ends for applications needing the use of multiple equipment racks in a series.
When your machine’s precision motion drive exceeds what can easily and economically be performed via ball screws, rack and pinion may be the logical choice. On top of that, our gear rack comes with indexing holes and mounting holes pre-bored. That saves you lots of time, hassle and expense.

If your travel duration is more than can be obtained from a single amount of rack, no problem. Precision machined ends permit you to butt extra pieces and continue going.
A rack is also called equipment rack or simply railing. They are rectangular shaped rods that are provided on one side with toothing just like a gear. By using a gear that partcipates in the toothing of the rack, it is possible to move the gear or the rack longitudinally. Tooth racks are used, among other things, in machines in which a rotational motion should be converted to a straightforward movement or vice versa.

If power transmission is carried out by equipment coupling, module transmission must be used. Usually the module identifies the kind of the gear and it is the ratio between pitch and p. Module changes based on the pitch. Here following the conversion table.
The existing industry standard, these 20° pressure angle gears have thicker, stronger teeth than 14½° pressure angle gears. Compared to plastic-type material gears and racks, they’re better for high-load, high-speed, and heavy duty applications. Also called spur gears.
