Metric gear rack is classified into nine different size modules (1 - 8) and are constructed of C1045 steel that meets UNI-EN10083-1 specifications. Our metric spur gear racks are suitable for continuous mounting and have a high precision tolerance of 0/-20μm on a single pitch and 0/- 30μmm on 500mm length sum of pitches. The "teeth" are at the optimal 20° pressure angle and meet DIN 3962/63/67 quality grade. We supply these gear racks in lengths ranging from 500mm up to 3000mm directly from stock.
The purpose behind gear racks are to convert rotating movement into linear motion, gear racks operate with a pinion (a cylindrical gear meshing with the rack) and for this reason this setup is often called a rack and pinion. When running gears and gear rack it is highly recommended to also use gear oil for increased performance and life. We also stock a wide range of metric spur gears and supply just about any power transmission product on the market, for additional information or to get a quote simply give us a call at (407) 347-3519 or email email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you.
