Rack-and-pinion drives

The Rack & Pinion Drive System catalog covers five levels of precision rack & pinion drive systems. DIN 7 and 8 quality levels provide competitive prices. The new StrongLine DIN 5 hardened and ground gear racks use a carburized case-hardening process to increase the strength of the rack, including the tooth flanks and root, which maximizes its power density, stiffness, and performance.

The design of the new TR ISO 9409-1 flanged pinions reduce the amount of drive torque required and allow for a smaller reducer to be used.

The HighForce rack-and-pinion drive systems have an integral output housing and outboard bearing to provide a rigid support to the output pinion, increasing the system’s linear stiffness by 300%, as well as increasing its power density.

The catalog features updated rack-and-pinion force ratings based on the latest refined calculation methods and material data.
