Rack Gear & Pinion Gear Application:
A rack and pinion gear mechanism is a very efficient way of directly transferring rotary motion into linear motion. By varying the sizes of either the rack or the pinion, the rotation / linear travel ratio can be varied according to the requirement criteria. Furthermore, force variation can be designed in by varying the size of the pinion. The most common use today for a rack and pinion assembly is in automotive steering systems, but there are other uses for it as well.
