A Equipment Rack or Rack Gear includes spur gear teeth or helical gear teeth cut on a linear rectangular or round rod. Both round gear racks and linear gear racks serves as a 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 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 in . and metric equipment racks have machined ends for applications requiring the use of multiple equipment racks in a string.
Whenever your machine’s precision movement drive exceeds what can easily and economically be performed via ball screws, rack and pinion is the logical choice. Best of all, our gear rack includes indexing holes and Stainless Steel Gear Rack installation holes pre-bored. That saves you plenty of time, hassle and expenditure.

If your travel length is more than can be acquired from a single length of rack, no issue. Precision machined ends allow you to butt extra pieces and continue going.
A rack is also called gear rack or simply railing. They are rectangular designed rods that are given on one aspect with toothing as being a gear. By utilizing a gear that partcipates in the toothing of the rack, it is possible to move the apparatus or the rack longitudinally. Tooth racks are used, among other activities, in machines where a rotational motion should be converted to an easy motion or vice versa.

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