Stainless Steel Gear Racks
Specifications Precision grade grade 5 Gear teeth Standard full depth Pressure angle 20° Material SUS304 Heat treatment Solution heat treatment
The current industry standard, these 20° pressure angle gears have thicker, stronger teeth than 14½° pressure angle gears. Compared to plastic gears and racks, they’re better for high-load, high-speed, and heavy duty applications. Also known as spur gears.
Combine gears with different numbers of teeth to change speed and torque in your assembly. Combine a gear and rack to convert rotary motion into linear motion. To minimize your footprint, mount one or more standard gears inside of an internal gear.
For components to mesh correctly, they must have the same pressure angle and pitch/module.
Stainless steel gear racks resist rust in damp and wet environments, so they're commonly used in food-processing plants and other areas with frequent cleaning.
