A Equipment Rack or Rack Gear includes spur gear the teeth or helical gear the teeth cut on a linear 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 movement of a pinion gear into linear motion or vise versa. When assembled, they are known as a rack and pinion. Rack gears provide an benefit over ball screws because they have a big load carrying capability and a simple design which allows linking Stainless Steel Gear Rack multiple racks to meet your required length.
We bring both rectangular and round cross-section gear rack designs in a
range of precision pitches. All our in . and metric gear racks have machined ends for applications requiring the use of multiple gear racks in a series.
When 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 mounting holes pre-bored. That saves you lots of time, hassle and expenditure.

If your travel duration is more than can be acquired from a single length of rack, no problem. Precision machined ends permit you to butt extra pieces and keep on going.
A rack can be called equipment rack or just railing. They are rectangular shaped rods that are given on one part 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 utilized, among other things, in machines where a rotational motion must be converted to a straightforward motion or vice versa.

If power transmitting is carried out by gear coupling, module transmission can be used. Usually the module identifies the kind of the gear and it is the ratio between pitch and p. Module changes according to the pitch. Here following the conversion table.
The existing industry standard, these 20° pressure angle gears have thicker, more powerful teeth than 14½° pressure angle gears. In comparison to plastic-type gears and racks, they’re better for high-load, high-speed, and durable applications. Also referred to as spur gears.
