Case-hardened rack

The Performance Class Rack is a case-hardened rack series that is an integral part of the company’s new high-performance linear system, which partners the rack with gearbox/actuator and pinion for system efficiency and optimal performance.

Four series of rack systems are available: Value Class, Smart Class, Premium Class, and Performance Class. The most economical, the Value Class, is for low-duty applications. Smart Class offers mounting flexibility, and Premium Class is for high-duty applications. The Performance Class is case hardened for optimal performance.

The Performance Class rack is available in two options — Performance (standard hole pattern) and High Performance (optimized hole pattern for high feeding forces). The hardening process provides strength at the tooth root of the rack, making the rack resistant to high stresses and allowing higher feeding forces to be transmitted.
