Correct mounting of racks is very important, not only for the accuracy of the entire installation but also for wear.
In this video we show how to install and adjust a gearbox with pinion in a rack & pinion application to avoid backlash and wear.
We tell you everything about the quality classes (and pitch deviation) of racks and explain why the name is not sufficient for a comparison
Here we show how the application determines which servomotor-gearbox combination, and subsequently rack and pinion, can be used.
Determining a linear drive is not easy and has to do with an interplay between gear rack, pinion, gearbox and motor.
