Gear racks are an economic drive element, especially with long strokes of more than 2m.
Gear racks are preferred also with dirty environments and/or big axial forces. The stiffness is the same over the whole length.
SCHNEEBERGER offers any cross-section up to module 16 with metric or module pitch, with helical or straight gears. The maximum single piece length is 3000mm, multi-piece butt jointed rails for longer lengths are warranted.
The teeth can be milled or ground, according to your wish. Interesting are the various hardening processes, depending on the applying load. Weak, inductive hardened or case hardened gear racks are available. The best gear quality is Q4 (individual adjacent pitch error fp=0,003mm, cumulative pitch error Fp=0,015/1000mm).
We sell competence and know-how, not standard products!
