Rack and Pinion Driven Modular Linear Actuators

The Rack and Pinion Driven Modular Linear Actuator come with an internal linear ball bearings that can be adjusted free of play, is driven along the guide rods by a high precision rack. The rack and pinion driven modular actuators system is suitable for highly dynamic servo operation and ideal for lifting movements. The pinion has maintenance-free ball bearings. The rack is lubricated by a toothed felt wheel.

Features

  • High precision/drive stiffness
  • Long service life and operational reliability
  • Long strokes possible
  • High thrust forces/load capacity

Literature

Flexibility that pays dividends

High drive stiffness even with heavy loads: Linear axes with rack and pinion drive guarantee highly dynamic movements and great feed forces in long strokes. 

  • High stiffness
  • Excellent positioning accuracy.
  • High load capacity
  • Long service life

A long established solution with excellent reliability. Our customers value the high flexibility of this solution.

Any number of rack segments can be connected together, allowing unlimited lengths. Furthermore, several carriages can be operated independently of each other on the linear unit. That means that you, upon its utilization, can immediately save time and increase your throughput.
