Linear Motion - Rack & Pinion Systems

Rack & Pinion Linear HeadsA "linear head" or rack & pinion system can generate linear motion simply by combining a standard AC motor.

Linear heads can be combined with a wide range of standard AC motors and also available with many different stroke lengths for use in simple operations such as push, pull, lift and lower.

Each model comes in two types; horizontal type and vertical type, to allow for mounting in different directions to meet various limitations on installation.
