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 position and preferably face width. EVER-POWER offers equipment racks in many components, configurations, modules and lengths. One exclusive feature of our racks is that most are given finished ends. This type of production permits multiple racks to be butted, end-to-end, to produce one continuous length of rack. Many of the products that people offer enable secondary operations such as reduction of the length, the adding of tapped holes, or the use of heat therapy. Our offering also includes products which have already had a few of these secondary functions completed. These products are recognized by a “J” in their part number plus they are offered within 10 calendar times.
The straight tooth cylindrical gear that the radius of the pitch cylinder is infinite and in a bar form is named a gear rack. If it’s sorted by the positions of the apparatus shafts, it is one of the parallel shaft category. The spur gear that meshes with a equipment rack is generally called a pinion.
Besides equipment racks with straight series the teeth, there are helical racks that have slanted teeth. Helical equipment racks are paired with helical gears, but because of the slant of the tooth direction, as in helical gears, the mesh creates axial thrust forces.
Among the apparatus racks’ main applications are machine equipment and transport devices so when the applications involve transmitting linear motions, they are generally compared with ball screws. In those situations, the main benefits of gear racks could be named this kind of as being able to meet a heavier load through the use of larger modules and having no size limitation by connecting gear racks with completed ends. However, an example of the disadvantages of equipment racks contains the occurrence of backlash.
When manufacturing equipment racks, because of their bar shape, bending often results. In these cases, corrective processes using presses are often employed.
As for the type of gear racks, aside from the usual bar form, there are circular racks in which the cross sections are circular and flexible racks which can be bent into totally free curve shapes.
EVER-POWER stock racks are created for high precision linear motion 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 applied only within the tooth area. J Series products are also available.
Hardened Surface Racks (KRGF-H – KRGFD-H)
Heat treated surface gears with high precision and power has superb cost-performance ratio. J Series items are also available.
Steel Racks (SR)
Low cost, huge selections of modules and number of teeth. J Series products are also available.
Stainless Steel Racks (SUR·SURF·SURFD)
Ideal for food machinery due to SUS304 material\’s rust-resistant quality.
Brass Racks (BSR)
Small pitch racks manufactured from free-cutting brass, excellent workability and high rust resistance.
Gear racks are utilized to convert rotating motion into linear movement. A gear rack has straight the teeth cut into one surface area of a sq . or round portion of rod and operates with a pinion, which is usually a small cylindrical gear meshing with the apparatus rack. Generally, equipment rack and pinion are collectively called “rack and pinion”. There are several ways to use gears. For example, as shown 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 various kinds of gear racks in share. If the application takes 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 “gear racks with machined ends”. When a equipment rack is produced, the tooth cutting process and the heat treatment process can cause it to try & go out of true. We are able to control this with special presses & remedial processes.
There are applications where in fact the gear rack is stationary, as the pinion traverses and others where the pinion rotates on a fixed axis while the gear rack moves. The previous is used broadly in conveying systems as the latter can be utilized in extrusion systems and lifting/lowering applications.
As a mechanical component to transfer rotary into linear movement, gear racks are often in comparison to ball screws. There are pros and cons for using racks in place of ball screws. The advantages of a equipment rack are its mechanical simplicity, huge load carrying capacity, no limit to the distance, etc. One disadvantage though is the backlash. The advantages of a ball screw are 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 movement, positioning mechanisms, stoppers and also to let the synchronous rotation of several shafts in general industrial machinery. However, also, they are found in steering systems to change the direction of vehicles. The characteristics of rack and pinion systems in steering are as follows: simple framework, high rigidity, small and lightweight, and exceptional responsiveness. With this system, the pinion, installed to the steering shaft, is meshed with a steering rack to transmit rotary movement laterlly (switching it to linear movement) so 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 movement into linear motion. Equipment rack from Ever-power is made to operate with our stock 14 1/2° and 20° PA spur gears.
Often, equipment rack is modified to match specific applications. This may include drilling and tapping mounting holes, cutting to specific lengths or coordinating ends of two bits of rack to make a continuous length longer than stock.
· Ever-power’s gear rack will come in 14 1/2° and 20° PA to suit an array of application requirements.
· Stocked in 4ft and 6ft lengths
· The selection of 48 to 3 DP meets an equally diverse array of needs.
· Length tolerance allows ends to end up being 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 overall performance.
