Rack & Pinion
A rack is a toothed bar or rod that can be thought of as a sector gear with an infinitely large radius of curvature.
Torque can be converted to linear force by meshing a rack with a pinion: the pinion turns; the rack moves in a straight line.
Such a mechanism is used in automobiles to convert the rotation of the steering wheel into the left-to-right motion of the tie rod.
Racks also feature in the theory of gear geometry, where, for instance, the tooth shape of an interchangeable set of gears may be specified for the rack (infinite radius), and the tooth shapes for gears of particular actual radii are then derived from that.
Racks can be delivered with different hardening methods different precision grade , and different materials from module 0.5 up to 10.
