GAM announces the release of new helical rack and pinion systems. High quality rack and precision pinions are paired with GAM gearboxes for optimized system performance.
Helical rack provides smooth, quiet operation and precision operation. The rack is available in 1-meter lengths in module 2, 3 or 4 and ISO quality 6 or 10. Precision pinions in ISO Q6, with low tooth counts, are designed specifically for GAM gearboxes.
“As the leader in product breadth and flexibility, the addition of this high-quality rack and pinion builds on our value proposition even more,” said Mark Darbyshire, regional sales manager, GAM. “Now we can provide a pre-engineered, optimized linear solution, tailored to our gearboxes. It is a great compliment to our robotic gearboxes for 7th axis applications.”
The eight gearbox and pinion combinations include inline and right-angle gearboxes in multiple sizes and precision levels. GAM rack and pinion systems are ideal for applications such as gantries, machine tending or a seventh axis for a robot.
