Racks are portions of a cylindrical disk with an infinite radius which has involute shaped the teeth cut into its face. Racks mate solely with spur gears which have the same module, pressure angle and preferably face width. EVER-POWER offers gear racks in many materials, configurations, modules and lengths. One exclusive feature of our racks is certainly that most are supplied with finished ends. This type of production allows for multiple racks to become butted, end-to-end, to create one continuous amount of rack. Many of the products that people offer allow for secondary operations such as for example reduction of the distance, the adding of tapped holes, or the use of heat treatment. Our offering also includes products which have already had some of these secondary operations completed. The products are identified by a “J” in their part number and they are offered within 10 calendar times.
The straight tooth cylindrical gear for which the radius of the pitch cylinder is infinite and in a bar form is called a gear rack. If it is sorted by the positions of the apparatus shafts, it belongs to the parallel shaft category. The spur gear that meshes with a equipment rack is generally called a pinion.
Besides gear racks with straight series tooth, there are helical racks which have slanted teeth. Helical gear racks are paired with helical gears, but because of the slant of the tooth direction, as in helical gears, the mesh produces axial thrust forces.
Among the apparatus racks’ primary applications are machine tools and transport devices so when the applications involve transmitting linear motions, they are generally compared with ball screws. In those situations, the main advantages of gear racks could be named such as being able to meet a heavier load by using larger modules and having no size limitation by connecting gear racks with completed ends. On the other hand, a good example of the disadvantages of equipment racks contains the occurrence of backlash.
When manufacturing equipment racks, because of their bar shape, bending often outcomes. In such cases, corrective procedures using presses are often employed.
As for the kind of gear racks, aside from the usual bar form, there are round racks where the cross sections are circular and flexible racks which may be bent into free curve shapes.
EVER-POWER share racks are made for high precision linear motion applications. We offer a large selection of racks ranging from module 0.5 to 10 and lengths from 100 to 2000 mm.
Hardened Ground Racks (MRGF – MRGFD)
Has the highest strength and precision in the EVER-POWER standard rack series. Bolt holes could be remachined as carburizing is usually applied only within the tooth area. J Series products are also available.
Hardened Floor Racks (KRGF-H – KRGFD-H)
Heat treated ground gears with high precision and power has excellent cost-performance ratio. J Series items are also available.
Steel Racks (SR)
Low cost, huge selections of modules and quantity of teeth. J Series products are also available.
STAINLESS Racks (SUR·SURF·SURFD)
Ideal for food machinery due to SUS304 materials\’s rust-resistant quality.
Brass Racks (BSR)
Small pitch racks manufactured from free-cutting brass, superb workability and high rust resistance.
Gear racks are utilized to convert rotating motion into linear motion. A equipment rack has straight teeth cut into one surface of a square or round section of rod and operates with a pinion, which is a small cylindrical gear meshing with the apparatus rack. Generally, gear rack and pinion are collectively called “rack and pinion”. There are numerous methods to use gears. For instance, as shown in the picture, a gear is used with the apparatus rack to rotate a parallel shaft.
To provide many variations of rack and pinion, Ever-power has various kinds of gear racks in stock. If the application takes a long duration requiring multiple equipment racks in series, we have racks with the tooth forms correctly configured at the ends. These are described as “equipment racks with machined ends”. When a gear rack is created, the tooth cutting process and the heat treatment process could cause it to try & walk out true. We are able to control this with particular presses & remedial processes.
There are applications where in fact the gear rack is stationary, as the pinion traverses and others where in fact the pinion rotates on a fixed axis as the gear rack moves. The former is used widely in conveying systems while the latter can be utilized in extrusion systems and lifting/lowering applications.
As a mechanical component to transfer rotary into linear movement, gear racks tend to be compared to ball screws. There are benefits and drawbacks for using racks in place of ball screws. The benefits of a equipment rack are its mechanical simplicity, huge load carrying capacity, and no limit to the space, etc. One drawback though may be the backlash. The advantages of a ball screw will be the high precision and lower backlash while its shortcomings are the limit in size due to deflection.
Rack and pinions are used for lifting mechanisms (vertical movement), horizontal movement, positioning mechanisms, stoppers and also to permit the synchronous rotation of several shafts generally industrial machinery. On the other hand, also, they are used in steering systems to improve the direction of cars. The features of rack and pinion systems in steering are the following: simple framework, high rigidity, little and lightweight, and exceptional responsiveness. With this mechanism, the pinion, installed to the steering shaft, is usually meshed with a steering rack to transmit rotary motion laterlly (converting it to linear motion) to ensure that you can control the wheel. Furthermore, rack and pinions are used for various other purposes, such as toys and lateral slide gates.

Gear rack, when used with spur gears, converts rotary motion into linear motion. Equipment rack from Ever-power is designed to operate with our share 14 1/2° and 20° PA spur gears.
Often, equipment rack is modified to fit specific applications. This might consist of drilling and tapping mounting holes, cutting to particular lengths or complementing ends of two pieces of rack to create a continuous duration longer than stock.
· Ever-power’s gear rack comes in 14 1/2° and 20° PA to match an array of application requirements.
· Stocked in 4ft and 6ft lengths
· The choice of 48 to 3 DP meets an equally varied array of needs.
· Length tolerance allows ends to become matched for easy modification.
· Our in-stock inventory of nylon, and metal ensures availability – and compatibility.
· Because it is properly matched to Ever-power’s spur gears, our gear rack promises superior functionality.
