Rack and Pinion Drives
Our rack and pinion drives are impressive due to their characteristics of being highly efficient and precisely dynamic. These benefits arise from the combinations of low-backlash planetary gearboxes with high-precision pinions and racks. In addition, they are characterized by a long service life. Our rack and pinion drives enable both dynamic acceleration and μm-accurate positioning even for machine tool gantries weighing several tons.
The combination of low-backlash planetary gearboxes with high-precision pinions and racks is extremely energy-efficient, precise, dynamic and convincing thanks to the long service life. Our Rack and Pinion Drives enable even machine gantries weighing tonnes to be accelerated dynamically and positioned accurately
down to the µm range.
With our extensive portfolio, we enable ideal, high-performance solutions for a wide range of industries:
- Machine tools
- Drive and automation technology
- Robotics and handling
- Plastics and film processing machines
- Wood processing machines
and many others
The system standards overview
High Precision - Gearbox with Splined Output Shaft Connection
MPRW with reduced backlash and rack in quality 5h23 and pinion in quality 5e24.
Precision - Gearbox with keyway connection at the output
MPRN with standard torsional backlash and rack in quality 6h23 (from 2 m 6h24) as well as pinion in quality 7e25.
In Q5 the rack is available as standard with 1 m or 0.5 m. In Q6 the rack is available as standard with 2 m, 1 m or 0.5 m.
If we say “on request” we mean: everything is possible. You benefit from the flexibility of two specialist companies with development skills and a range of components that is quite unique in the world. We do everything in our power to ensure you get just the rack and pinion drive you require.
From customizing through more minor application-specific adaptation of our range components through adaptation of design sizes to the development of tailor-made solutions. Working with you, we design the optimum and most economic customized solution which is in no way inferior to our tried and trusted series products in terms of either quality or efficiency.
