AutomationDirect adds GAM Helical Racks and Pinions

GAM Helical Racks and Pinions

January 27, 2021 – The new GAM helical racks and pinions, along with our broad gearbox offering, provide a complete linear solution.

Rack and pinion systems are a type of linear actuator consisting of a rotating pinion that drives a linear rack, converting rotary motion to linear motion.

High-precision helical racks provide smooth, quiet operation. Pinions can be mounted to SureGear gearboxes, are hardened and work with ISO 10 hardened racks.

Components with module pitches of 1.5, 2.0 and 3.0 are available. Starting at $160.00, GAM rack and pinion components have a 1-year warranty.
