These drives are perfect for a wide range of applications, including axis drives requiring precise positioning & repeatability, traveling gantries & columns, pick & place robots, CNC routers and material handling systems. Heavy load capacities and duty cycles can also be easily handled with this drives. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation, Automotive, Aerospace, Machine Tool and Robotics.
Typical delivery time for these standard components is 2 to 3 weeks, which is ideal for OEM's requiring just-in-time delivery schedules. Special and/or modified components are always possible - please consult the factory.
NEW Master Hardened & Ground Pinion Gears with DIN 6 quality level can be bored and modified to suit any application needs.
NEW Helical Hardened & Ground Pinion Gears with DIN 5 quality level and splined bores for mounting to precision planetary reducers.
There are five basic pinion gear styles available (click on style for PDF catalog pages):
A Compression Coupling can be used on pinions with side hubs to attach the pinion to the shaft without any backlash. This option, which can be used in conjunction with a key, is best for applications with high reversing cycles and eliminates the possibility of fretting corrosion.
Helical versus Straight: The helical style provides several key benefits over the straight style, including:
disadvantage to using helical rack & pinions is that they could require more time to set up
and align properly.
There are three basic quality levels of pinion gears: Click on Series Numbers for PDF catalog pages.
* Induction-Hardened pinion are made from soft pinions.
For most rack and pinion applications, a hardened & ground pinion is typically used since it sees the most cycles. The pinion is usually harder than the rack for this reason.

With open gearing such as rack & pinions, lubrication is critical! A thin film of grease or oil should always be on the contacting tooth flanks to ensure there is no metal-to-metal contact, which can damage the teeth.
It is recommended to use our Automatic Lubrication System, which pumps grease through a felt gear applicator and meshes directly to the pinion or the rack. This provides continuous lubrication at the tooth flanks, extending the lifetime and maintaining the quality of the gearing.
Gear Racks, consisting of both helical & straight (spur) tooth versions, in an assortment of sizes, materials and quality levels, to meet almost any axis drive requirements.
ISO Flanged Pinions, are provided with ISO 9409-1 flanges to mount directly to our High-Torque (HT) Servo-Worm Reducers and popular planetary gearboxes, such as Alpha TP, Stober PH, Apex AD and Neugart PLF. This interface provides a tight integration of the pinion to the gearbox output, reducing overhung loading and backlash between the components. The pinions are easily mounted and replaceable if future repair is needed.
Servo Reducers are available
in five levels of precision to meet any application needs. Perfect for use in applications that
demand high performance, precise positioning and repeatability.
Angular backlash levels down to less than 1 arc-minutes are
available as standard. Optional integral pinion shafts are
also available to mount directly to hollow output
