Power Transmission Gear Racks - Custom Gear Racks Manufacturer
Toronto Gear Works supplies gear racks that are manufactured in Brass, Steel, or Stainless Steel. We make our stock gear racks with a pressure angle of 20 degrees and diametric pitches of 24, 32, 48, and 64. We make sure to keep quality and precision as the key components in our manufacturing process.
You might be asking, what is a gear rack? A gear rack is a circular gear called the pinion engaging teeth on a linear gear back, which converts rotational motion into linear motion. This pair of gears is called a rack and pinion. The rotational motion is then applied to the pinion causing the gear rack to move. This entire process is the gear rack’s linear motion being translated from the rotational movement of the pinion.
Some of the machines that use gear racks include milling machines, automotive steering, meat processing machines, and grinders. CNC routers, automation systems, material handling systems, robotics, and the aerospace industry also use gear racks.
At Toronto Gear Works, we offer custom gear rack manufacturing in various materials: plastic, brass, steel, and aluminum. We are able to produce gears with pin hubs, clamp hubs, or completely hubless gears. We manufacture spur gears, metric gears, bevel gears, helical gears, worm gears, gear clusters, gear blanks, anti-backlash gears, gear stock, ratchets, pawls, and pinion shafts.
