Rack & pinions are available in many various configurations. Pinions are manufactured as an enclosed 'clam shell' housing to keep debris out and the mechanisms running free. Pinions are offered as a traditional one piece design or as a two piece unit (the EZ-fit) ideally suited to repairs and retro-fits.
The performance characteristics of all components have been selected to provide a durable and hardwearing solution.
Whether EZ-Fit or traditional, the travel in one turn equates to 5" / 126mm movement on the rack. This is the same for both standard and heavy duty rack bars. For many years, this travel distance per revolution has been the industry standard so it is possible that failing rack & pinions systems can be easily replaced with little disruption and minimal labour.
Options - aluminium racks
Standard (circular section) or Heavy duty (rectangular section)
Straight or curved (teeth may be on inside or outside of radius) – radius can be standard or client specified
Pinions are designed for 1” or ¾” nominal bore tube
Rack travel: 126mm / 5” per pinion revolution
Maximum rack length: 6000mm / 230”
Both the Standard and Heavy Duty rack bars are compatible with either the Conventional Pressed Pinion or the EZ Fit Pinion systems.
