 Rack Gears

Rack gears are actually straight bars with gear teeth running along one side meshing into the gear teeth of a pinion. Usually the teeth are straight (spur rack). Occasionally the teeth are at an angle (helical rack).

Racks and pinions are sometimes used instead of an acme threaded shaft and nut to move a machine head in a back and forth motion.

Rack gears are typically used in automobiles (with pinions) to convert rotation into linear motion. When the automobile is steered it engages the track, the track slides right and left. This arrangement provides a greater feedback, or steering "feel". Stahl gear can custom manufacture or repair your rack gears for almost every application.

If you are looking for custom manufacturing services of rack gears or emergency repairs, just contact us for more information or to schedule your service.
