Induction-hardened gear racks

Two new versions of Rack Gears feature 1045 carbon-steel construction and induction-hardened teeth for precise operation, high strength, abrasion resistance, and long service life. The RGEAH ground rack gear comes without holes or with bottom, side, or side-counterboard tapped holes. The RGEAHL version lets users configure hole machining with bottom, side, or side-counterboard tapped options. Both rack gears have a black-oxide finish, end-face machining, and come in a variety of sizes. The racks are used with pinions (spur gears) to convert rotational motion into linear motion in products such as machine tools, conveyors, hoists, drives, and roller feeds.
