A new series of 7 flexible molded Duracon and steel racks  introduced by
Quality Transmission Components can run with standard  20 degree pressure angle
metric gears for low cost linear indexing  applications of any length. The 3
standard lengths stocked, 2000 mm,  3000 mm, and 4000 mm (78.7", 118.1" and
157.5") can be extended by  adding additional sections. They are ideal for curved,
circular or  irregular surfaces where they can fit a bend radius of as small
as  3" and still run with standard metric gears. Fitted in their  flexible
nylon guide rails they can be bent into circular shape to  function either as
internal or external gears.

The unique ability of these racks to be bent or slightly twisted make them ideal for use as serpentine drives. They are positioned with specially designed screw-down rack clamps or with a choice of 6 aluminum or steel guide rails. The standard rack sizes stocked are: 0.8, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 Module and Circular Pitch 5. These bright blue colored acetal and steel racks can run with a variety of plastic, brass, steel or stainless steel gears. The widths of the 7 racks stocked range from 3.8 mm to 8 mm (.150" to .315") in plastic and 10 mm (.394") in steel. Rack heights range from 3.3 mm to 7 mm (.130 mm to .276").

The light weight, self lubricating plastic racks have a high dielectric strength and are resistant to alcohol, ketones, oil, grease, gasoline and other weak acids and alkalis. Their maximum continuous working temperature is 212 degrees Fahrenheit but they can operate intermittently at temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
