A Equipment Rack or Rack Gear includes spur gear tooth or Stainless Steel Gear Rack helical gear teeth cut on a linear rectangular or circular rod. Both round equipment racks and linear equipment racks serves as a a sector gear with an infinitely huge radius of curvature.

The most obvious utilization 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 known as a rack and pinion. Rack gears offer an benefit over ball screws because they have got a sizable load carrying capacity and a simple design which allows linking multiple racks to meet your required length.
We carry both rectangular and circular cross-section gear rack styles in a
range of precision pitches. All our ” and metric equipment racks have machined ends for applications requiring the use of multiple gear racks in a string.
Whenever your machine’s precision motion drive exceeds what can simply and economically be achieved via ball screws, rack and pinion may be the logical choice. On top of that, 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 acquired from a single length of rack, no issue. Precision machined ends permit you to butt additional pieces and keep on going.
A rack is also called equipment rack or simply railing. They are rectangular shaped rods that are given on one side with toothing just like a gear. By utilizing a gear that engages 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 where a rotational motion must be converted to an easy motion or vice versa.

If power transmission is completed by equipment coupling, module transmission can be used. Usually the module identifies the type of the gear and it is the ratio between pitch and p. Module changes 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 material gears and racks, they’re better for high-load, high-speed, and durable applications. Also known as spur gears.
