Misumi’s induction-hardened rack gears combine high precision with abrasion resistance.
Misumi has introduced two rack gears that feature 1045 Carbon Steel construction and induction hardened teeth. The gears are designed for use in pinion (spur gear) mechanisms to create a simple actuator that converts the rotational motion of the pinion into linear motion.
The additions include the RGEAH Induction Hardened Rack Gears with machining options no hole, or bottom tapped, side tapped or side counterboard tapped holes. The company’s RGEAHL Induction Hardened Rack Gears, offers user configurable hole machining, with bottom, side or side counterboard tapped options. Both new rack gears are manufactured in 1045 Carbon Steel with Black Oxide Finish, and both feature end face machining. The Rack Gears are available in a variety of sizes (Module 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0).
