High Precision CNC Machine Nylon Plastic Gear for Transmission
Plastic Rack and Pinion
Racks and pinions are mechanical components that convert rotary motion into linear motion. It is commonly used in industrial environments and vehicle steering mechanisms. This equipment is usually made of ABS plastic and is yellow. The applications of racks and pinions vary widely, but they are generally used for lifting and clamping purposes.
The basic design of the rack and pinion is similar to that of a conventional gearbox, with some differences. The first is shape. Traditional racks and pinions are rectangular but can also be circular or crescent-shaped. The gear teeth of the circular rack are cut into the rod in a crescent shape. This design also means it’s less potent than a rectangular rack.
Racks and pinions are most commonly used in the steering mechanism of wheeled vehicles. It offers less mechanical advantage than a recirculating ball but has lower backlash and a better steering feel. It can be driven hydraulically or electrically.
Another significant advantage of a plastic rack and pinion is that it does not require lubrication. These properties make plastic racks and pinion an excellent alternative to metal gears. Although initially used in low-power precision motion transmission applications, plastic gears are now used in high-power transmission applications. One of the most essential systems in a vehicle is the steering system. When designing a steering system, careful consideration should be given to the vehicle’s rack and pinion material.
