Spur Gear Racks

The most obvious use 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 advantage over ball screws because they have a large load carrying capability and a simple design that allows linking multiple racks to meet your required length. Our engineers are well versed in the design and application of precision helical gear racks and can assist you in selecting or customizing metal gear racks for your application. We also build a range of Rack and Pinion Actuator gearboxes.

Precision Helical Gear Racks for Linear Motion Applications

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