Racks are portions of a cylindrical disk with an infinite radius which includes involute shaped tooth cut into its face. Racks mate exclusively with spur gears which have the same module, pressure position and preferably encounter width. EVER-POWER offers gear racks in many components, configurations, modules and lengths. One unique feature of our racks can be that most are supplied with finished ends. This type of production permits multiple racks to become butted, end-to-end, to produce one continuous length of rack. Most of the products that people offer enable secondary functions 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 a few of these secondary functions completed. These products are determined by a “J” in their part number plus they are available within 10 calendar times.
The straight tooth cylindrical gear that 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 gear shafts, it is one of the parallel shaft category. The spur equipment that meshes with a equipment rack is generally called a pinion.
Besides equipment racks with straight collection teeth, there are helical racks which have slanted teeth. Helical equipment racks are paired with helical gears, but because of the slant of the tooth path, as in helical gears, the mesh generates 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 often weighed against ball screws. In those situations, the main benefits of gear racks could be named this kind of as having the ability to satisfy a heavier load by using bigger modules and having no duration limitation by connecting gear racks with finished ends. However, an example of the disadvantages of gear racks contains the occurrence of backlash.
When manufacturing gear racks, due to their bar shape, bending often results. In such cases, corrective procedures using presses tend to be employed.
As for the type of gear racks, aside from the usual bar form, there are round racks where the cross sections are circular and flexible racks which can be bent into free curve shapes.
Racks Categories
EVER-POWER stock racks are made for high precision linear movement applications. You can expect a large selection of racks ranging from module 0.5 to 10 and lengths from 100 to 2000 mm.
Hardened Floor Racks (MRGF – MRGFD)
Has the highest power and precision in the EVER-POWER regular rack series. Bolt holes can be remachined as carburizing is usually applied just 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 exceptional cost-performance ratio. J Series items are also available.
Steel Racks (SR)
Low cost, huge selections of modules and number of teeth. J Series items 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, exceptional workability and high rust resistance.

Gear racks
Gear racks are utilized to convert rotating movement into linear movement. A gear rack has straight the teeth cut into one surface area of a square or round section of rod and operates with a pinion, which can be a small cylindrical gear meshing with the gear rack. Generally, equipment rack and pinion are collectively known as “rack and pinion”. There are many ways to use gears. For example, as proven in the picture, a gear is used with the apparatus rack to rotate a parallel shaft.
To provide many variants of rack and pinion, Ever-power has many types of gear racks in stock. If the application requires a long length 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”. Whenever a equipment rack is produced, the tooth cutting procedure and heat treatment process could cause it to try & walk out true. We can control this with unique 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 while the gear rack moves. The previous is used broadly 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 motion, gear racks tend to be compared to ball screws. There are benefits and drawbacks for using racks instead of ball screws. The benefits of a equipment rack are its mechanical simplicity, large load carrying capacity, and no limit to the space, etc. One disadvantage though is the backlash. The advantages of a ball screw will be the high precision and lower backlash while its shortcomings are the limit in duration due to deflection.
Rack and pinions are used for lifting mechanisms (vertical movement), horizontal motion, positioning mechanisms, stoppers and to permit the synchronous rotation of several shafts generally industrial machinery. However, also, they are found in steering systems to improve the direction of vehicles. The features of rack and pinion systems in steering are the following: simple structure, high rigidity, little and lightweight, and excellent responsiveness. With this mechanism, the pinion, installed to the steering shaft, is certainly meshed with a steering rack to transmit rotary motion laterlly (switching it to linear motion) to ensure that you can control the wheel. In addition, rack and pinions are used for many other purposes, such as toys and lateral slide gates.

Gear rack, when used with spur gears, converts rotary motion into linear motion. Gear rack from Ever-power is made to operate with our share 14 1/2° and 20° PA spur gears.
Often, equipment rack is modified to match specific applications. This might include drilling and tapping installation holes, cutting to particular lengths or matching ends of two bits of rack to make a continuous duration longer than stock.
· Ever-power’s gear rack will come in 14 1/2° and 20° PA to match a wide variety of application requirements.
· Stocked in 4ft and 6ft lengths
· The choice of 48 to 3 DP meets an similarly diverse array of needs.
· Length tolerance allows ends to end up being matched for easy modification.
· Our in-share inventory of nylon, and steel ensures availability – and compatibility.
· Because it is properly matched to Ever-power’s spur gears, our equipment rack promises superior functionality.
